Download Software

Desktop or Server - which is better for me?

IUCLID 6 can be downloaded in two forms. These provide the same core functionalities, but are designed to cater to different sets of user requirements.

IUCLID 6 Desktop
In IUCLID 6 Desktop, IUCLID 6 runs on a single machine. One user accesses one database, with no network connection necessary. There can be more than one user account for the installation, but only one user uses the installation at a time. The database is integrated into the IUCLID 6 application. There is no need to install database software separately. The installation process, maintenance and upgrades are designed to be as simple as possible. This is aimed at SMEs, and those who simply want to try out the software.

IUCLID 6 Server
In IUCLID 6 Server, IUCLID 6 runs in an application server. A user connects to the application over a network using a client program that can be run on any machine that has network access to the server. Many users can access the same instance of the application and therefore the database, at the same time. Access to documents can be restricted per document, per user, and per groups of users. The database software is installed separately from the IUCLID 6 application server and client(s). This type of installation is intended for use by larger companies and organisations.

IUCLID 6 Server is marked out from IUCLID 6 Desktop visually by having a grey ring around the orange icon.
