MySQL DB Project

Abstract/Project Description

Our Buildings group currently has a couple of MySQL ( databases holding information from various buildings on campus. Much of our databases are set up to obtain data via SOAP ( or other online databases. We would also like to set up a database to collect and store data from our in-lab experiments. That is, while Matlab runs our MPC controller of the HVAC system in lab, we would also like to be storing information pertaining to this controller. This data will then be used to better analyze the performance of our controller.
In addition, we may investigate options for backing up these databases (cost-effective, safe) either remotely or to another server in lab.
