Maui Supercomputer Upgraded, Renamed and Blessed

On Friday, August 21, 2009, the 50th anniversary of Hawaii becoming a state, the Maui High Performance Computing Center, which is 15 years old, received an upgrade and was renamed from "Jaws" to "Mana". Operated by the University of Hawaii and the U.S. Air Force Research Labs, it has regained the distinction, for at least a short while, of being the most powerful computer facility in the U.S. Present for the blessing were U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, the original and current champion of having a supercomputer on Maui; and new University of Hawaii President M.R.C. Greenwood, making her first public appearance as UH President.

Mahalo to David Lassner for helping me identify some of the people in the ribbon cutting photo. Also Maui News reporter Harry Eagar's article on the event is republished in the Honolulu Advertiser.
