Virtual infrastructure with database as a service

This groundbreaking project will provide a local virtual infrastructure (VI) that will interface with a national higher education VI - or "cloud" - to enable the sharing of services across the sector and save money through economies of scale. The VI will host a self-service "database as a service" (DaaS) system that will give researchers a way of creating, configuring, editing and querying databases through a simple, flexible and intuitive web interface. Its creation will help to improve the efficiency of UK research. User support materials, courses and documentation will be developed in close collaboration with the Digital Curation Centre.
