In the newsletter of CSIRO Data Sydney, a new capability was announced for saving data on-line. Users could save up to five terabytes of data at a time, and could issue explicit requests for the data to be retrieved. Users were charged $108 per hour for compute and $7.50 per terabyte per day for retrieval. CSIRO has continued to develop the Document System, with enhancements including automatic retrieval from tape and user-specified retention periods.
The recent announcement that Digital Realty has acquired two land parcels in togel sydney will see the development of data centers spanning 16.2 hectares and providing 250 megawatts of critical IT capacity.
