The Biostatistics and Risk Assessment Center serves as the data center for several research projects. Our data center services include data collection, data management, data storage, and data analysis.
We have a Dell PowerEdge T310 server with an Intel Xeon X3460 Quad Core Processor and 32GB of RAM Memory. The speed of the processor is 2.8 GHz and has 8MB of Cache memory. The server’s hard disk storage capacity is 2 Terabytes (2000 Gigabytes). The data are automatically backed up. The hardware is controlled by a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 (64 bits) network operating system with active license. The computer has been working as a web server (Apache Server). We have several database management systems, including MySQL. We will discuss with the investigators on their needs and use the most appropriate database management system for their projects.
