NeCTAR Research Cloud
Intersect has chosen Dell as its partner in standing up its NeCTAR Research Cloud node in a deal worth just under $1M. The Research Cloud equipment is currently being assembled at Macquarie Telecom's IC2 data centre where it is co-located, and closely coupled, with Intersect's HPC, Orange, and Intersect's petabyte scale storage facility funded by RDSI.
Local configuration is now in progress and we expect to move into full production by the end of the month when our internal QA is scheduled to be complete.
