AARNet Cloud Services

AARNet’s home-grown cloud data storage and transfer systems continue to grow in use, clearly meeting the real needs of researchers.

Currently, CloudStor (our file transfer system) has over 11,000 unique users, and has transferred over 175,000 files since its launch, mostly within Australia but also to 94 other countries.

CloudStor+, our ad hoc cloud storage service for researchers (who can use up to 100GB free of charge) already has over 1,800 users, with a total of 7TB of storage currently in use.  CloudStor+ was recently described by an independent member of the research support community as “like Dropbox but better”.

AARNet believes that a range of cloud storage solutions is required to meet the various needs of researchers, and feels that services like CloudStor+ fill a niche between institutional storage and RDSI national storage solutions.

Reinforcing our belief in a diversity of solutions, we partnered with Box to provide a highly versatile storage solution to Australian researchers, and all AARNet customers, whose needs may be better suited to that product.
