AARNet and University of New South Wales Information Technology (UNSW IT) collaborated to develop a specialised high-performance network for the Garvan Institute of Medical Research’s human genome sequencing facility.
The network supports high-performance computing and storage resources and includes a fully redundant high-speed link to the data centre in North Ryde.
This purpose-built network provides interconnections between the Garvan Institute/ UNSW and Intersect at unprecedented capacity.
“The beauty of this is that we can get our data to the Intersect RDSI node, and from there it can be pushed to other nodes across Australia on the great RDSI highway that has been created behind the scenes through the National Research Network Project,” says Dr Warren Kaplan, Chief of Informatics at the Garvan Institute.
Sequencing data will travel across the AARNet high-speed backbone that interconnects all the RDSI nodes and researchers at institutions across Australia.
“The reach of the AARNet network is a real advantage for us – most of the researchers in Australia using the Garvan’s sequencing facility will be able to access and download their data using the AARNet network,” he says.
This is an excerpt from AARNet’s new Garvan Institute case study, adapted from Australia’s healthy human genome reference collection, first published by RDSI.
