Information Services

Cloud Computing Service

An OpenStack service to provide a platform to self-provision server infrastructure to support both researchers and development teams.

Information Services is providing an OpenStack interface to the the University’s research computing infrastructure, to provide support to researchers who require a platform to self-build their own server infrastructure and utilise the storage from Datastore.

Information Services also provides an OpenStack service to provide an agile development platform and a burst capacity service to support developers in IS and schools and to provide a stable service with a higher guarantee of reliability than that of the research service, which by its nature will more likely track the latest releases of OpenStack.
