Data & Cloud

Projects using the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre’s resources often produce seemingly unmanageable amounts of data. Not only does this data need to be stored, but scientific computing places new demands on researchers to curate and share their data, as well as to ensure the value, accuracy and longevity of their results.

To enable projects and researchers to do this, Pawsey host a range of advanced data storage and analysis tools.

Pawsey’s high throughput cloud infrastructure represents a significant improvement from the original Nimbus cloud, in CPU, memory and storage, providing enhanced computational flexibility, accessibility and speed.  

Nimbus allows researchers to process and analyse larger volumes of data through additional storage and opportunities to work with Kubernetes container orchestration, building on Pawsey’s existing container technology for its HPC systems. 

In addition to providing data storage for the most demanding research projects, our Data staff help researchers to maximise the potential of these vast data sets through a number of support services
