Why Purchase Resources?

Koa is free to use for all students, faculty and staff at any of the campuses in the University of Hawaii system.

While a significant amount of work can be completed using free community resources, some researchers may find that they need more storage or dedicated resources to run longer jobs than the community nodes allow or they find the wait times for community resources to significantly impede their research.

Faculty and staff can purchase or lease compute nodes to power their research and select a long term storage solution for their data.

 

Purchase or Lease a Node

We offer computational resources that fit the needs of your research. Gain exclusive access to compute nodes that are at your disposal through a condo node purchase or lease nodes for a time period of your choice.

 

Condo Nodes

Condo node purchases are available until October 31, 2023. All nodes have 25 Gbit ethernet, 100G HDR Infiniband and have a 5-year warranty.
