The ACCC hosts two types of local database servers for use by individuals, departments, or other campus groups: MySQL and MSSQL. Both are relational database management systems (RDBMS) that support multiple databases and that allow multiple people to access each one.
MS SQL is Microsoft's proprietary relational database server; its primary query languages are T-SQL and ANSI SQL.
MySQL databases are a popular choice for web applications, particularly ones running on a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python). Our MySQL databases include:
A valid UIC NetID is required to request a database.
We can normally accommodate small to medium sized databases without any problems, but we may need to account for larger databases with special hardware or setup scenarios.
