Examples of our tailored solutions
- IT infrastructure for Youth
Research Data Management Support helped to plan and design a data management system and IT infrastructure for Youth, a major university research project supported by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The project aims to collect a decade’s worth of data on healthy children (ages 0-16) to identify developmental success factors. It therefore had crucial requirements in terms of quality of data storage and privacy. Using iRods technology, the RDM team developed Yoda – a hardware and software package with a unique quality-control portal for input, well-structured storage and central facilities that guarantee all data is usable, findable and completely secure.
- NMR and WeNMR facilities back-up
Utrecht University features a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) research lab with very unique facilities that are available to qualified, national and EU researchers through various large-scale facility projects. This ongoing collaboration generates a great deal of valuable data. To facilitate and streamline the interpretation of the data, a variety of services are offered through the WeNMR portal (FP7 EU eInfrastructure project) to a large and worldwide community of users. For maximum security in the event of fire, blackouts or similar events, it was obviously crucial that a second data and web portal back-up is established outside of the lab. The RDM team realised a complete and fully automatic disaster recovery back-up service for the NMR group's Linux-based systems that takes place at a remote location every day.
The collaboration with the Data Management Support team has been particularly pleasant and successful, with short lines of communication and an open attitude toward supporting research.
