Publication/Grant Writing Help

This page will assist you in writing eRSA into your grant and acknowledge eRSA support, or acknowledge your use of the eRSA services.

Writing eRSA into your Grant

If you are using eRSA services and wish to write us into your grant, please use the statement below and edit as required.  

eResearch SA Limited (‘eRSA’) is a collaborative joint venture between The University of Adelaide, Flinders University, and the University of South Australia. eRSA’s focus is enabling research and innovation by providing eresearch platforms such as High-Performance Computing, Cloud, and data storage services.   

TANGO HPC & Cloud

eRSA has partnered with DELL EMC to deliver a HPC and Cloud platform built to enable collaboration and innovation among researchers across South Australia. Through this partnership with DELL EMC, eRSA participates as a global reference site in the EMC Customer Reference Program to demonstrate leading-edge solutions with enterprise-capable high-performance computing as exemplars for new research applications on DELL EMC and VMWare technology platforms. TANGO infrastructure is hosted within the only Tier 3 certified data centre in Australia, owned and operated by a South Australian company. This certification is above that of any standard University on premise data centre hosting rating capability in SA. 

TANGO resources are shared on a fair use policy and have been designed to be scalable, with more hardware added to meet researcher demand.    

Storage

eRSA hosts research data storage on high performance, enterprise-quality storage systems. Every measure has been taken to ensure the stability and security of the stored data. The storage hardware is hosted in a Tier 2 data centre, which is climate controlled (temperature and humidity) by fully redundant air conditioning systems. The storage servers are powered by redundant power circuits and uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Data is allocated to a redundant array of independent disks with dual parity (RAID6) to cope seamlessly with a disk failure and systems are monitored 24×7 by multiple vendors’ support services. Access to the data centre is controlled by a security key card system and is restricted to authorised personnel.  

Acknowledging use of eRSA services in your Publication

If you are using eRSA services and wish to acknowledge this use in your publication, please use the statement below:

“This research used [insert service] services provided by eRSA.” 

e.g. This research used high-performance computing and storage services provided by eRSA.

If you are using the NeCTAR Research Cloud, please use the following acknowledgement:

“This research was supported by eRSA and by use of the Nectar Research Cloud, a collaborative Australian research platform supported by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).”

If you do have any further inquiries regarding this or require some assistance, please contact our communications team at comms@ersa.edu.au.

  • “It would be impossible to do the type of research that we’re doing without them – it is a major factor in achieving our research outcomes.”  
    Associate Professor Con DoolanSchool of Mechanical Engineering, University of Adelaide
  • "The eRSA support is very personal and solution-focused and not just a brushing off 'it's-your-fault-check-your-code' kind of support which one sometimes gets from University tech supports. I very much appreciate the help."

  • On using an eResearch program to complete 3D modelling of architectural records: “We were able to build an interactive, photo image model of the [historical South Australian property Joseph Elliot’s cottage] home – transforming simple sketches and floor plans into an interactive 3D experience... what we have now is a computerised model that allows us to experience the Elliott house beyond just words on paper”.
    Associate Professor Christine Garnaut
  • “The supercomputing facilities at eResearch SA permit analysis of a host of interesting problems in evolutionary biology. It is the only computer system in SA that can perform certain complex calculations required to infer large evolutionary trees and associated patterns of evolution.”

  • “Open source intelligence is about extracting information from blogs, news sites and social media platforms, any information that can be freely accessed online. There’s way too much information out there for an individual or group of people to comprehend, so we have created automated tools to allow our users to extract the data they need...access to the latest technology allow[s] us to continue to provide the best platforms to our end-users.”
    David BlockowData to Decisions CRC
  • “Having access to greater computer power helps us put in place a more realistic model in terms of the number of atoms you can have in the system and that improves the predictive power of the calculations.”
