Computers, Servers and Data Integrity

Computers and Servers

CADE’s web servers host web sites, online databases, asynchronous conferencing, live synchronous conferencing, audio and video streaming, online survey deployment, web site statistical tracking and analysis software. In addition to the applications developed internally, we also support a host of third-party applications. These include Helix Universal Server (digital media streaming), SAS (powerful data analysis), VMWare (virtual server hosting and management), and a variety of other applications.

Data Integrity

To protect and preserve the integrity of our network and data, all CADE server and infrastructure equipment is firewall protected and stored in secure areas. All equipment has environmental protection (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) and has adequate power protection and battery run-time.  Lastly, CADE employs extensive data backup and server redundancy procedures.
