1Manager, ITS eResearch, The Walter Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research
The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute made the decision last year to substantially invest in moving its research compute capability to the private cloud model. This included the creation of a dynamic HPC cluster.
The benefits of this strategy have been in a flexible infrastructure that has enabled researchers across multiple divisions of the institute to undertake a range of different computational science approaches that were previously not available to them. We have also been able to progressively evolve the research computing capability to meet the changing demands of researchers.
