ARDC Nectar Research Cloud

The ARDC National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources project (Nectar) Research Cloud provides an online infrastructure under ARDC that supports researchers to connect with colleagues in Australia and around the world, allowing them to collaborate and share ideas and research outcomes, which will ultimately contribute to our collective knowledge and make a significant impact on our society.

NeCTAR is building eResearch infrastructure in two project areas:

Research Platforms

Nectar Research Platforms are rich domain-oriented online environments that draw together research data, models, analysis tools and workflows to support collaborative research across institutional and discipline boundaries. They are built and led by the Australian research sector and are used nationally and internationally by the research community.

Research Cloud

Nectar Cloud provides computing infrastructure, software and services that allow Australia’s research community to store, access, and run data, remotely, rapidly and autonomously. Nectar Cloud’s self-service structure allows users to access their own data at any time and collaborate with others from their desktop in a fast and efficient way.
