The University of Hawaiʻi, which has managed and operated the Maui High Performance Computing Center since 2001, has created a new Academic-Industry Alliance with Lockheed Martin, Pacific Defense Solutions, Referentia Systems Incorporated and Oak Ridge National Laboratory to pursue the follow-on MHPCC contract, which is expected to begin Oct. 1, 2011.
Over the past 10 years, UH has led the transformation of MHPCC to become a major national DoD Supercomputing Resource Center. The new alliance will support the long-term sustainability and success of the MHPCC DSRC as a vital national asset and cornerstone of the high technology community on Maui and in Hawaiʻi.
“Building on our strong record of excellent management of the Maui High Performance Computing Center DoD Supercomputing Resource Center for the past decade, the University of Hawaiʻi is partnering with an exceptionally strong combination of local and national organizations to take the MHPCC DSRC to the next level of achievements,” says President M.R.C. Greenwood. “Our ‘Home Team’ is eminently capable and well-prepared to continue our outstanding record of performance into the future for the benefit of our nation and the state of Hawaiʻi.”
