Research and the Cloud

For all students

Dulcie Hollyock Room
Ground floor, Baillieu Library

Did you know Melbourne Uni has one of the world's largest IT clouds dedicated to research? Did you know this is part of the world's second largest network of research clouds “Nectar” and you already have access? Cloud is IT infrastructure on demand, when you need it, and under your control. It can be used for data storage, but can also host servers, shared desktop computers with common software, more memory for big applications, and faster internet when needed. We’ll talk about how the cloud is being used, pitfalls and issues to be aware of, so come and ask questions about what's possible and how it could advance your research.

Presenters: Dr Lyle Winton, Lucy Davies, Chris Stueven, Bernard Meade and Martin Paulo
