The Research Data Services (RDS) team provides technical expertise, strategic thought, and project leadership on research data technologies and services to IU research community. RDS engages in in-depth partnerships and research projects with researchers and technical staff at Indiana University and with external collaborators who are seeking to develop innovative applications and methodologies to manage research data. The RDS team evaluates, implements, and supports deployments of sustainable, data and workflow management tools.
RDS in cooperation with the Research Technologies Systems Group, operates the Indiana University Research Database Complex. The RDC supports research-related databases and data-intensive applications that require databases. The RDC provides MySQL and Oracle databases, and an environment for database-driven web applications focusing on research.
In collaboration with the Social Science Research Commons (SSRC), RDS provides the Restricted Access Data Remote Server (RADaRS) service. RADaRS is a data enclave that serves social sciences who obtain, store, analyze and conduct research with datasets that must be used only within a secure environment.
