University of Melbourne Operating Centre planning for first expansion

Through the RDSI Board Allocation Process the University of Melbourne is expanding its current Market  and Compute Storage.

This latest expansion will utilise the new NetApp FAS8040A disk platform to deliver an additional 564TB Market storage at both the Queensberry Street and Noble Park Data centres for a total of 1130TB of Market storage.

In addition, a new software based (CEPH) Compute service is providing an additional 74TB of Compute Storage.

The expanded storage is expected to be available to the Victorian research community in early March 2015.
