1 QCloud Queensland Cloud Data Storage and Services 27Mar2012 QCloud1

2 NATIONAL RDSI 6 primary, 4 additional nodes PB by Gb/sec node interconnect Storage for large national collections Shared access by research communities Research data management On-shore data cloud Low-cost research production quality of service 27Mar2012QCloud2

3 NATIONAL NeCTAR RESEARCH CLOUD 6 primary nodes (maybe 7) 24,000 cores by 2013 On-demand compute capacity for research Hosted shared services for research communities Virtual laboratories Research tools, workflows Uni of Melbourne QCIF/UQ ANU Monash Uni 27Mar2012QCloud3

4 QCLOUD COMPONENTS RDSI DATASTORE NeCTAR RESEARCH CLOUD QERN CLOUD GENOMICS CLOUD 5x >15x 27Mar2012QCloud4

5 QUEENSLAND RDSI NODES ~ 30 Petabytes by 2014 Primary node hosted at UQ (embargoed) Additional Node at JCU (awaiting decision) National focus: ecosystems, genomics 75% Merit Allocated Collections 25% “Collection Development” Can add RDSI+ commercial research storage 27Mar2012QCloud5

6 COLLECTIONS Market Data Collections Active research projects Collaborations across multiple locations Fast disk, flash memory – immediate access Market Data Collections Active research projects Collaborations across multiple locations Fast disk, flash memory – immediate access Vault Data Collections Rarely accessed data archival storage Broad availability Tape, slow disk Vault Data Collections Rarely accessed data archival storage Broad availability Tape, slow disk 27Mar2012QCloud6
