Five years ago the Garvan Institute of Medical Research embraced genomics to underpin all its research, and thereby became Australia’s biggest genome data producer. Today, Garvan computes and runs services on all commercial clouds (AWS, Azure and Google).
The aim of the project was to investigate and report on the following:
- How Garvan currently manages costs on commercial clouds and providers of Platforms as a Service (PaaS), specifically DNAnexus;
- how Garvan decides between commercial and on-premise solutions and our advice on how to make this decision, and
- how the ARDC could be a valuable partner to research organisations in supporting the demand in this area.

What does this project enable?
Projects in this area will contribute to determining what vision, governance structure and implementation program are necessary to create an Australian research data commons.
