UK IDAC updates

Hi everyone,

A quick update on UK IDAC technology preview to note that we switched over to a larger instance of Qserv, this week. As well as having more workers (10 rather than 5), it also has greater storage capacity meaning we can serve DP0.2 catalogues (equiv. of what is available in Project DAC) alongside early data from other UK in-kind contributions. DP0.2 images and FITS catalogues are in progress: we aim to have these ingested by end of March (along with DP0.3 catalogues).

Note UK IDAC is currently in early-access mode with a limited number of invited users. We hope to open up more widely over the coming months, once our compute capacity is expanded. Watch this space.

Hope this is interesting,
George (and the UK IDAC team).
