RDS helps researchers to leverage resources from Research Technologies, UITS, IU, and beyond, while supplementing with non-duplicative services in research databases, restricted data enclaves, data and metadata management workflows, and geospatial and text data analysis.
Databases for research
The Research Database Complex (RDC) supports data-intensive research requiring MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB and Oracle databases. RDC databases are operated in collaboration with the UITS Enterprise Database Administration team, and therefore offer enterprise grade uptime, updates, and security. In all but the largest cases, RDC databases are available to researchers with no chargeback. The RDC is strictly devoted to supporting research, and it is not a database environment for instruction or administration.
