We’re pleased to advise that AARNet’s personal Cloud Storage service (CloudStor+) is now in Beta release and available for testing by interested researchers.

This service is available to researchers in all AARNet member organisations, with the first 100GB provided free of charge.  Researchers who have previously been using the Data Fabric, now being wound down, may find CloudStor+ to be a viable alternative.

We can also advise that equipment has now been deployed at nodes in Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne; Australian Access Federation (AAF) compliance has been effected;  and platform support extended as follows:

  • there is a fully-featured Web client accessible from any platform supporting contemporary Web technologies;
  • installable, synchronising clients are available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux;
  • mobile clients are available for Android, iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch).

Initial testing has proven positive – for instance, CloudStor+ is achieving read/write speeds that are orders of magnitude faster than other commercially available cloud storage solutions.

The Website has been updated to reflect this progress, and includes FAQs. See http://www.aarnet.edu.au/communities/research/eresearch-overview/cloudstorplus-information.

Release for general use is expected for late 2013.

 

Please contact eresearch@aarnet.edu.au if you would like to participate in the Beta testing.
