Outage Notice: QRIScloud Storage Services


In continuing to improve the QRIScloud service, and following our initial QRISalert notification on 22 July regarding upcoming changes to collection storage infrastructure, we can now confirm that a major change will take place over the following time period:


Thursday, 24 December 2020, 5:00pm AEST to 

Monday, 4 January 2021, 9:00am AEST



During this period, we will be working with the vendor to replace the existing end-of-life hierarchical storage management (HSM) system. All of your data will be safe while this upgrade takes place, however, all access to data collections will be disabled. This includes:

  • SSH/SFTP/SCP to data via data.qriscloud.org
  • NFS access to data on Virtual Machines running on QRIScloud
  • Collections being accessible on the Awoonga, FlashLite, and Tinaroo HPC clusters.

We apologise for any inconvenience this outage may cause.

Kind regards,

QRIScloud Support.
