What technologies does Mosaic use?
Mosaic is built on tried and trusted mainstream enterprise technologies. Mosaic is a web-based* application served over https and hosted by a Windows Server running IIS. Mosaic uses an Oracle database server to store data and state.
*The only exception to this is any Mosaic applications that are connected to hardware (e.g. liquid handlers) in which case these are client/server applications running on Windows
What hardware do I need to run Mosaic?
Access to the Mosaic web pages can be via any computer running a compatible web browser, including IE11 and Chrome.
The Mosaic application server runs on a Windows server. Common server configurations are supported, from single CPU upwards, although hardware specifications will vary depending on the scale of your system. Detailed specifications are available using the request form below.
Are there any special requirements for the database hardware?
Mosaic FreezerManagement installations include an Oracle XE database which is installed on the same Windows server as the Mosaic application. For Mosaic SampleBank or larger systems, a separate Oracle database is specified. This can be hosted any platform supported by Oracle, including Windows, Solaris, Linux.
