High Performance Computing

At the direction of DoD’s High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP), ARL at UH employees working at the Maui High Performance Computing Center (MHPCC) support High Performance Computing (HPC) for science and engineering organizations through the use of a web-enabled Portal. Production version HPC Portals are currently available and support all five DoD Supercomputing Resource Centers. Any user workstation on any network can access HPCMP system and HPC-backed capabilities via HPC Portal. Due to a significant increase in teleworking, the HPC Portal has seen a signficant increase in utilization. The ARL at UH maintains the HPC Portal software for the HPCMP program and this year worked to enhance the effectiveness of the file management web graphical user interface and internal deployment management of the software. ARL at UH also works with the Department of Navy Modeling and Simulation (DoN M&S) Office to develop an enterprise digital collaboration engineering environment at MHPCC. The enterprise environment hosts a library of M&S capability that includes processes, standards, tools and best practices to enable enterprise-wide discovery, access, and reuse of software products. ARL at UH promotes the strategic use of digital representations of systems and components and digital artifacts to design and sustain national defense systems. The goals of the strategy include formalizing the development, integration, and use of models to inform enterprise and program decision making; providing an enduring, authoritative source of truth; incorporating technological innovation to improve the engineering practice; establishing a supporting infrastructure and environment to perform activities, collaborate and communicate across stakeholders; and transforming the culture and workforce to adopt and support digital engineering across the lifecycle.
