ZDNet UK's sister site ZDNet Australia was invited inside Global Switch's datacentre facility based in Ultimo, Sydney, for a tour of the Harbour MSP suite, which houses Steam Engine's high-performance computing gear.
Steam Engine runs a cloud-based, high-powered computing environment that has been used for resource-intensive data analysis from the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva to rendering facilities for Australian special effects gurus Rising Sun Pictures.
Each of these hard disks stores 30TB-worth of data ranging from scientific analyses to files for films. These are four-year-old legacy drives and plans are in place to modernise the storage array.
