Indigenous artefact collection gets digitised

Nutanix, a provider of hybrid multicloud computing, has assisted the Australian Institute of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) in digitizing its Indigenous Australian cultural artifacts and archive collection.

The implementation of Nutanix AHV and the Nutanix Kubernetes Engine helped extend the performance of the institute’s core data center to remote locations. This allowed for the faster analysis of large data sets, as well as remote management of the IT infrastructure supporting the digitization project.

Partner company Qirx played a role in deploying the IT architecture, which led to increased efficiency and the ability to allocate more resources towards innovative technology. The digitization of the collection will make the unique cultural artifacts accessible to communities across Australia and preserve Indigenous history for future generations.
