The Monash RC ops team is pleased to advise the monash-01 zone is available for use again following physical hardware relocation and subsequent upgrade performed over the last week. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by the delayed release.
The eResearch SA’s block storage service (volumes) is now publicly available in the SA AZ. The service will be in BETA – we will be performing tests and obtaining user performance feedback for the next 2 weeks to ensure we are providing a robust service. In the interim, we may not be able to prevent any data loss or corruption, however we would appreciate end user assistance to test this service capability.
The Openstack Orchestration service, known as Heat is now available on the NeCTAR Research Cloud. You will see a new orchestration tab in the dashboard. Heat can be used to automate the deployment and management of instances, applications and even resources like storage. We have created some documentation and some examples on how to use heat to get you going.
