The SCAPE project 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. SCAPE 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.
- Future SCAPE events are being planned.
- Impressions of the ‘Hadoop-driven digital preservation Hackathon’ in Vienna 06/12/2013More than 20 developers visited the ‘Hadoop-driven digital preservation Hackathon’ in Vienna which took place in the baroque room called "Oratorium" of the Austrian National Library from 2nd to 4th of December 2013. It was really exciting to hear people vividly talking about Hadoop, Pig, Hive, HBase followed by silent phases of concentrated coding […]shsdev
- Week 48: A SCAPE Developer Short Story 04/12/2013It's been two weeks since the internal SCAPE developer workshop in Brno, Czech Republic. It was a great workshop. We had a lot of presentations and demos, and were brought up to date on what's going on in the other corners of the SCAPE project. We also had some (loud) discussions, but I think we came to some good agreements on where we as developer […]BoletteJurik
- SCAPE/OPF Continuous Integration update 01/11/2013As previously blogged about by Carl we now have virtually all SCAPE and OPF projects in Continuous Integration; building and unit testing in both Travis CI and Jenkins. Travis compiles the projects and executes unit tests whenever a new commit is pushed to Github, or when a pull request is submitted to the project. Jenkins builds are generally scheduled once […]willp-bl
- Scalable Environments for File Format Identification and Characterisation 14/10/2013Link: Webinar registration This webinar provides an introduction to file format identification and characterisation tools which have been developed or extended as part of the SCAPE Project.It covers the basic principals of file format identification, and shows how format information drives digital preservation workflows.Participants will be given an overvie […]becky
- Measuring Bigfoot 08/10/2013My previous blog Assessing file format risks: searching for Bigfoot? resulted in some interesting feedback from a number of people. There was a particularly elaborate response from Ross Spencer, and I originally wanted to reply to that directly using the comment fields. However, my reply turned out to be a bit more lengthy than I meant to, so I decided to tu […]johan
