QCIF helps trauma educator ease the pain of data storage

Summary

As a USQ special education researcher, Dr Kay Ayre would carry a portable hard drive to regularly back up her files of data. QRIScloud and Nextcloud solved that problem for her.

QCIF’s USQ-based eResearch Analyst, Dr Francis Gacenga, helped Dr Ayre set up a Nextcloud desktop application on her computer and transfer her files across. Dr Ayre then used Nextcloud (with QRIScloud as the backend) to store all her files—research, data collection, teaching content and the like.

QCIF helps Griffith clean energy researcher gain more time on national supercomputers

Dr Yun WangSummary

Through QCIF, a Griffith University renewable energy researcher has taken his work to the next level with all-important access to national high-performance computers.

Before contacting QCIF, Dr Yun Wang of Griffith’s Centre for Clean Environment and Energy was facing the very real possibility of having to stop computational research due to a lack of HPC resources. 

QCIF, however, was able to gain his research team more time on the National Computational Infrastructure’s (NCI) supercomputer via QCIF’s share, and Yun has been using this ever since. QCIF also helped him to connect with the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre to use its HPC.
