Our trials with 16 research groups using the new CloudStor group quota and sharing capability have been underway for a couple of months now and run through to the end of the year. Our aim is to help researchers by enabling research data to be shared easily and quickly between institutions.
Participating research groups are spread across most universities in Australia and a wide range of disciplines, including climate science, education, languages, social science and pharmacy, to name a few.
Some of the collaborations in the trial cohort also involve sharing information with non-university group members, such as government departments, education sector vendors and hospitals, as well universities overseas, in New Zealand, Asia and the United Kingdom.
At the end of these trials, we will be reviewing the CloudStor group quota requirements, with general availability planned for 2016.
