Based in Queensland, QRIScloud offers researchers large-scale cloud computing and data storage services.  Its role is to stimulate and accelerate the use of computing by researchers across all disciplines.

QRIScloud lets researchers compute using large virtual clusters, host web services, store even very large research datasets, share existing data collections across research communities, and collaborate more easily with other researchers nationally and internationally, whether in government, academia or industry.

QRIScloud is part of a federally-funded, national network of research computing infrastructure designed to provide researchers with access to high-speed, high-capacity computing services.   QRIScloud is managed by QCIF and jointly operated through The University of Queensland and James Cook University. To access QRIScloud services, such as setting up data storage, or launching virtual machines, please contact QCIF.

QRIScloud enables institutions to focus on their key research, knowing that compute power is readily available and that datasets generated by their researchers are stored in a safe and easily accessible location.

Using QRIScloud, researchers can:

•    Share datasets with collaborators worldwide
•    Manage and control access to their data collections
•    Leverage data collections stored in state and national RDSI nodes
•    Integrate access to Queensland-based HPC facilities and specialised cloud services
•    Access virtual labs with national communities
•    Launch on-demand computation
•    Host web services
•    Access and use a wide range of existing eResearch services, tools and applications.
