Chronopolis Teams up with DuraSpace to offer New Digital Preservation Cloud Services


Posted On: September 19, 2016

The TRAC-certified Chronopolis digital preservation network at the UC San Diego Library is collaborating with DuraSpace to offer the DuraCloud Enterprise Chronopolis subscription plan, which provides DuraCloud customers with a wide range of benefits, including geographic replication and synchronization of content between three diverse Chronopolis storage locations; web-based administrative dashboard with deposit workflow; access to deposit transaction information; end-to-end content integrity monitoring in a dark storage option, and included bandwidth.

Chronopolis leverages high-speed networks, mass-scale storage capabilities, and the expertise of the partners—National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, in addition to the UC San Diego Library—to provide a geographically distributed, heterogeneous, and highly redundant archive system. The network has the capacity to preserve hundreds of terabytes of digital data of any type or size, with minimal requirements on the data provider.

DuraCloud is a hosted service and open technology developed by DuraSpace to help organizations take advantage of cloud services. DuraCloud uses existing commercial cloud infrastructure to enable long-term access to digital content. It is particularly focused on providing preservation support services and access services for academic libraries, academic research centers, and other cultural heritage organizations. The service offers cloud storage across multiple commercial and non-commercial providers, as well as smart preservation tools that enable security, data access, transformation, and sharing.
