Project Description

The central goal of this proposal is to provide functional access to the previosly established long-term integrated scientific data storage capacity, distributed between Queensland, the ACT and Victoria, We will improve the access to the basic data archival infrastructure via middleware services, and federation and replication services that provide integrated sets of distributed digital data archives on existing high performance tera-scale storage systems. This will meet the growing requirements of Australian researchers and facilitate the interchange and dissemination of data across institutions. The initiative builds on existing software developments made overseas and through strategic collaborations between the three universities.
