Database and Web Hosting Services

The NRSP-8 Bioinformatics coordination team can provide computer resources to NRSP-8 member for hosting of lab/consortium databases, web-accessible software/database presentation and other possible projects. The current development/ hosting platforms include:

Intel XEON3.06A 1M 533MHZ 604PIN
    • Dual processor,
    • 8 GB RAM,
    • 750 GB Storage.
  • OS:

    • MySQL ver 14.7 Distrib 4.1.11
  • RDMS tool:
    • phpMyAdmin (MySQL manager)
  • Porgramming environment:
    • Perl 5.8.5;
    • Bioperl 1.5.2;
    • Bioperl live;
    • PHP 4.3.5RC4

User data backup is done :

  1. Weekly to an external backup tape device;
  2. Quaterly to external storage disks.

MySQL/Postgres data backup are also done by data export (dump) to SQL based plain text files :

  1. Weekly data exports are kept up to one month;
  2. Monthly data exports are kept permanently.

    The "permanent" copy of the database exports will be selectively deleted from backup archive to save space in one of the following cases assuming:

    • The data is older than 5 years
    • Newer replicates of the same data are in existence in the backup

Depending upon our workload, we will strive to provide NRSP-8 human resources for software/database development to NRSP-8 members free of charge. Feel free to discuss your needs with our Bioinfo Team.
