FCE LTER Information Management System (IMS) Overview

FCE Information Technology Resources

The FCE IMS group manages three virtual Linux servers, two virtual Windows servers, one physical Linux server, and two desktop workstations for a total storage capacity of 3.253 Terabytes. FCE site data, databases and project information are housed on a suite of virtual servers maintained by the Florida International University’s Division of Information Technology: two Oracle 12c database servers (production & development), two web servers (production & development) and a FCE FTP server. The dedicated development virtual servers for both the Oracle 12c database and the FCE website are extremely beneficial to the IMS group because changes made to these systems can be tested without having to worry about interrupting service or corrupting existing system setups. The virtual server environment, coupled with the FCE physical computers, allow for more storage that enables the FCE IMS to receive, handle, analyze and deliver high-resolution data at the FCE site level and permits the FCE program comprehensive and timely contributors of sensor data and metadata to the LTER Network Information System (NIS).
