NCI operates an Openstack based private cloud computing environment which is available to NCI users and projects who have a dynamic or long running service requirement. At its core Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services including servers, storage, networking, software, analytics and intelligence over the Internet (or "the cloud") to offer faster innovation, flexible resources and economies of scale. Typically, you only pay for cloud services you use, helping you utilise NCI services budget more effectively, operate the infrastructure you need more efficiently and scale across NCI Cloud and HPC environments as your research needs change.

The NCI's Nirin Cloud environment provides NCI users with the capability to compose a dynamic and scalable compute environment, built using Virtual Machines (VMs) for compute, Volume and Object storage to hold data, Private and Internet access for networking, and access to NCI gdata filesystems.
