Alveo Services Restored

I’m pleased to report that the Alveo server is now fully restored and all services should be working again as normal.  AAF login is working again and password reset emails are now being delivered.

There is some work still in progress. In particular the Galaxy server will be updated soon with some more tools for manipulating speech data.  We have been building tools to support workflows involving forced-alignment with MAUS and formant tracking with the Emu wrassp toolkit.  These are now mostly working and we will deploy them as soon as we can.  The use of Galaxy for speech and language analysis is a new development and we are still working out the best way to build tools and chain them together.  When we have some tools available we’ll invite you to experiment and provide feedback so that we can hopefully build something that is generally useful to the community.

 

Alveo Server Outage

As of this morning (1st November) the Alveo server is offline. We are currently moving the server from its previous home at Intersect in Sydney to the facilities of NCI in Canberra.   We had hoped to have a seamless transition between the two services but unfortunately the new server is not quite ready.

We will bring Alveo back online as soon as possible.  All user accounts and collections should be maintained.

One major addition will be that for the first time we will have the full Austalk collection on Alveo.  We’ve been working on finalising this collection for some time and this is the first opportunity we’ve had to get the entire collection ingested.  When the server returns you should see over 850,000 items in the Austalk collection.
