Australian Research Informatics Infrastructure

The Australian Government's support for the development of eResearch infrastructure capabilities is now well into its second decade. As a result of recent investments that infrastructure will expand during 2013 and 2014 to include network fibre linking all mainland capital cities, two problem focussed peta-scale supercomputers, shared use multi-petabyte data services in each state integrated with research cloud services and overlaid by collaborative virtual laboratories. The presentation will provide a brief overview of those developments and then focus on the challenges created for institutional and research activities and the potential for a newly developing approach to research informatics.
