The Computational Module of the Core Grant  has provided a FileMaker Database Server for use by vision researchers and associated staff.

This server will provide the following for our research data:

  • Sharing & Security: This server provides secure, multi-user access, to shared databases using UCSD Active Directory authentication
  • Accessibility: FM DBs can be accessed from both Windows and Macs, and from iOS devices: iPads and iPhones. With additional programming, FM DBs can be web-enabled and accessed from any web-browser
  • Visibility: DB access can be restricted to only those persons authorized by the appropriate PI
  • Redundancy: The server is located at the UCSD RCI facility at SDSC with redundant power, cooling and networking
  • Data Integrity: The databases are backed up nightly to two locations
  • Active Server Management: The server will be managed by HGC Computer Group in coordination with the Department IT group
