Do you have a need for local data storage or computational resources?

04 Nov 2019

The Research Lifecycle Programme are holding 2 workshops to get feedback from the research community

The Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) wants to hear from the research community to help create a service that will provide edge computing.

Until now, Research IT has managed only central platforms, such as the Computational Shared Facility (CSF) and Research Data Storage (RDS). However, sometimes there is a good reason to build and run local infrastructure (eg for pre- or post-processing data). This is known as ‘edge compute’.

A successful outcome of this service will eliminate the requirement, in almost all cases, for researchers to design, procure and implement their own IT platforms.

Two workshops will be held to gather feedback from the research community to find out what would make this service useful to them.

Researchers from all faculties are more than welcome to attend. Tea, coffee and refreshments will be provided.
