PIREN - Pacific Islands Research and Education Network (NSF)
The University of Hawaii’s Pacific Islands Research and Education Network is in place for these functions: support AARNET’s circuits from Australia and New Zealand to the U.S. via Hawaii; foster research and education network capacity to interconnect Pacific Islands with each other and the global network; connect Mauna Kea and Haleakala, sites of major international astronomy observatories; and cooperate with relevant NSF project awardees.
This project aims to bring advanced cyberinfrastructure capabilities such as data storage, transfer and management and compute to UH researchers through the use of the Agave platform (https://agaveapi.co/) for accelerating research. UH CI will leverage the Agave APIs to build science gateways, application and pipelines to support UH research. Agave is the leading all-in-one Science-As-A-Service platform for the Open Science community.
ACI-REF Advanced Cyberinfrastructure - Research and Educational Facilitation (NSF)
The ACI-REF program, Advanced Cyberinfrastructure – Research and Educational Facilitation: Campus-Based Computational Research Support, is represented by a consortium of education and research institutions. These institutions are committed to the vision of advancing scientific discovery through a national network of highly trained facilitators known as ACI-REFs. Three members of the UH ITS-CI team are trained ACI-REF facilitators.
ʻIke Wai - IKE Integrated Knowledge Environment (NSF)
Hawai‘i EPSCoR project, ‘Ike Wai, is a cross disciplinary project that aims to increase understanding of Hawaiian island hydrology to provide improved data to address challenges to water sustainability from climate variability, population demands and water contamination. The IKE science gateway serves as the central location for data management, computation, analysis, visualization and dissemination of all data and data products generated by ‘Ike Wai.
