Science Clouds

‘The Australian Science Clouds provides a new model for delivering eResearch infrastructure ​through strategic​ partnerships with NCRIS research-domain capabilities.’ – Glenn Moloney, Nectar Director

Three community focused cloud platforms, the Australian BioSciences Cloud, the Australian Marine Sciences Cloud and the Australian Ecosystems Science cloud are being established in partnership with National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) domain capabilities.The community focused cloud platforms will extend, upgrade and integrate existing NeCTAR, RDS, BPA, TERN and IMOS infrastructure. The ScienceClouds will ensure that research communities have improved access to shared data, tools, platforms and computing resources according to each community’s domain-specific needs.
