Consulting and support contracts
Glencoe Software employees have a range of expertise in developing and deploying large-scale systems for the management and visualization of scientific data.
Purchasing, installing, deploying, and making full use of your storage and computing resources can be time-consuming and error-prone. A lab or institute is most likely to make large-scale purchases for the first time at the beginning of a large project, a time when serious mistakes are most hazardous. Let our experienced staff outline a solution for your computing needs and get your system administrators up to speed.
If, instead, you would prefer to allow Glencoe Software to deploy and maintain the hardware remotely, a hosting plan can be created to match your needs.
The switch to a client/server model can often be a complicated one. Though the collaborative and performance benefits of having a centralized server are enormous, users and developers alike can find it difficult to step out of the traditional standalone, desktop role. Our architects can help you plan the creation of new, asynchronous, distributed services which can make full use of your computing capacity.
If your facility is involved in the creation of analysis routines, Glencoe Software can provide the necessary glue-code to integrate your application with the OMERO server. One example of such a binding is the Matlab interface developed and maintained in the open-source project. As with new file formats, options are available for sponsoring new application interfaces in the open-source code base or for producing a new proprietary one.
In addition to project-based consulting, support contracts are available for guaranteed access to OMERO developers and extended documentation examples.
