Data Grid Storage Infrastructure for e-Research (2006)

The central goal of this proposal is to provide a long-term, integrated scientific data storage capacity, distributed between Queensland, Victoria and the ACT based on existing high performance storage systems. We will implement an integrated set of distributed digital data archives - a Data Grid - by deploying 200TB of data capacity upgrade at UQ, ANU, Monash University and JCU and supporting the required middleware, thereby leveraging grid practices. 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 four universities.
