These days we setup a new MOSAIC-Database in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. Like the databases in Malaysia and Columbia, the new database is standalone, too. Due to the big distance (and therefore potentially unstable connection) to Germany it is not synchronized with the database in Berlin. MOSAIC users in Brazil will surely benefit from faster database access and therefrom shorter response times of the user interface.
The MOSAIC-Team would like to acknowledge Karen Pontes from UFBA for organizing the new server connection. The server is located at the “Universidade Federal da Bahia”, a public university in the city of Salvador. It is the largest university of the state of Bahia and already hosted a Summer School in 2013 where MOSAIC has been introduced to the workshop participants the first time.
