Scalable Preservation Environments (SCAPE)
Date du début: 1 févr. 2011, Date de fin: 30 sept. 2014 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Description This project will enhance the state of the art of digital preservation through scalable preservation actions; automated, quality-assured workflows; and a policy-based planning and watch systemThe SCAPE project will enhance the state of the art of digital preservation in three ways: by developing infrastructure and tools for scalable preservation actions; by providing a framework for automated, quality-assured preservation workflows and by integrating these components with a policy-based preservation planning and watch system.These concrete project results will be validated within three large-scale testbeds from diverse application areas: Digital Repositories from the library community, Web Content from the web archiving community, and Research Data Sets from the scientific community. Each Testbed has been selected because it highlights unique challenges. SCAPE will develop scalable services for planning and execution of institutional preservation strategies on an open source platform that orchestrates semi-automated workflows for large-scale, heterogeneous collections of complex digital objects. These services will be able toIdentify requirements for preserving all or parts of a repository through characterisation and trend analysisDefine responses to those needs using formal descriptions of preservation policies and preservation plansAllow a high degree of automation, virtualization of tools, and scalable processingMonitor the quality of preservation processes.The SCAPE consortium brings together experts from memory institutions, data centres, research labs, universities, and industrial firms in order to research and develop scalable preservation systems that can be practically deployed within the project lifetime. SCAPE is dedicated toward producing open source software solutions available to the entire digital preservation community. The project results will be curated and further exploited by the newly founded Open Planets Foundation. Project results will also be exploited by an SME and research institutions within the consortium catering to the preservation community and by two industrial IT partners.
