About this Event:
Need a faster computer? Like to share your data analysis environment with colleagues? Perhaps you're thinking of hosting a web application to collect data or share results? The NeCTAR research cloud can help. It offers free on-demand computing and storage resources to researchers. This workshop gives a basic introduction of the cloud, and NeCTAR in particular. It will cover how to start and connect to instances, use the command line, install software, backup your data and manage security. NOTE: This workshop is about 8 hours long, spread over four two hour sessions. Prerequisites: * Laptop with WiFi access and administrator access (so you can install new software) * AAF login, e.g. active University of Melbourne email account.

A little bit about us......
We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in Frank Tate, Room 101 ( opposite Tsubu) You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!
Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.
As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
