This page provides details about servers that provide free Heurist services for small to medium databases.
For larger projects (>100,000 records, >500M images or other files, high traffic expected) we recommend that you contact us for advice on installing a server e.g. a dedicated commercial virtual server in the Cloud, which can be an inexpensive solution, and the use of SSL for greater security. We strongly recommend serving videos from a streaming service such as YouTube – they can be embedded seamlessly into Heurist.
Heurist can be easily installed on Linux servers (scripted for Debian, Ubuntu and Redhat; other flavours and Windows may require manual intervention) including virtual servers such as the Australian NeCTAR Research Cloud. Please contact the server owner to determine service conditions (e.g. security, backup, limits on usage etc.).
