AARNet has decommissioned CloudStor.
With CloudStor’s underlying software and platform architecture reaching end of life and requiring a significant investment to rebuild, as well as large, commercial vendors now offering equivalent cloud services, we’ve made the decision to decommission CloudStor. AARNet will continue to focus resources on providing high quality solutions that meet the specialised future needs of the research and education sector.
