Event Details

This year has truly been an exciting and successful one for eRSA, and we have a lot to celebrate.

 Our top achievements in 2016 include:

  • Completed the deployment of hosted databases, servers, web portals and over 100 TB of storage for The Plant Accelator, a major component of the NCRIS Plant Phenomics Network.
  • Designed and provisioned hosted eResearch infrastructure with over 200 processing cores and 30TB of storage for a big data analytics platform for the Data to Decisions Cooperative Research Centre.
  • Completed development and provisioning of the Online Ancient Genome Repository (OAGR) and a customised online laboratory information management system (LIMS) and samples database for the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD). OAGR was funded through the ANDS Major Open Data Collections program.
  • Developed an online image database solution and other services for the Ecoinformatics facility of the NCRIS Terrestrial Ecosystems Research Network (TERN).
  • Helped researchers to start using eRSA high-performance computing and the national Research Cloud, by providing training courses, improved online documentation, and user support.
  • This year, 12 new South Australian research projects have begun using the Nectar national research cloud, and many existing projects have increased their usage. More than 110 SA research projects have now used the research cloud, utilising hundreds of cloud virtual machines and thousands of processing cores.
  • eRSA now serves over 5 Petabytes of data from our storage services, which is now being used by more than 70 SA research projects.
  • Deployed an improved implementation of the Emu HPC cluster, which runs in the national Research Cloud. 
  • We successfully held our Innovation Symposium which featured the collective minds of Thought Leaders from SA Government, DELL, Amazon Web Services, the Growing Data Foundation, Data 2 Decisions CRC and eRSA.
  • Enjoying working with our users and partners and having a lot of fun along the way!

To thank you for your continued support we invite you to join us at our end of year celebration.

We will be raising a toast to a successful 2016 from 4pm on Thursday, 8 December at the Science Exchange.
