Winchester, MA Columbia University, Rice University, and the State of
North Carolina will take part in the newly launched DuraCloud Archive-It
(AI) pilot program designed to provide Archive-It partner organizations
with additional options to back-up their collections of archived content.
Archive-It (archive-it.org), a web archiving service from Internet Archive,
and DuraCloud (duracloud.org), a managed service for archiving content in
the cloud from DuraSpace, have teamed up to test this new DuraCloud service
that will allow Archive-It users to take advantage of DuraCloud's key
features for storing digital collections: the ability to add any number of
content copies to the cloud and store them with several different
providers; automatic content health checks that easily detect bit integrity
issues, and; Amazon Glacier access as a secondary, low-cost cloud store.
The program goal is to test the new DuraCloud service for seamless
Archive-It back-ups in DuraCloud this summer. Plans are to launch the
DuraCloud-Archive-It utility to their library and archive community later
