Researchers are increasingly taking advantage of cloud services to support their IT needs. A number of services are available to Australian researchers that provide free access to cloud resources. Services include:
- NeCTAR Research Cloud, for hosting servers and software, as well as large processing computers
- CloudStor+, for online storage and sharing of files
- CloudStor, for transferring or distributing larger files.
All of these services can support secure multi-institutional, external and international access and data sharing.
