As storage costs drop, storage is becoming the lowest cost in a digital repository – and the biggest risk. We examine current modelling of costs and risks in digital preservation, concentrating on the Total Cost of Risk when using digital storage systems for preserving audiovisual material. We present a managed approach to preservation, and the vital role of storage and show how planning for long-term preservation of data should consider the risks involved in using digital storage technology… Expand
Alternatives for Long-Term Storage Of Digital Information
TLDR
Three criteria are examined in order to help preservationists determine the best storage option for their institution: Cost, Longevity, and the Migration Time frame. Expand
SUSTAINABLE ARCHIVING AND STORAGE MANAGEMENT OF AUDIOVISUAL DIGITAL ASSETS
With the advent of end-to-end tapeless production and distribution, the whole concept of what it means to archive audiovisual content is being challenged. The traditional role of the archive as aExpand
Reliable audiovisual archiving using unreliable storage technology and services
TLDR
This paper presents ongoing work in the UK AVATAR-m project and in the recently started EC PrestoPrime project on a framework for storing large audiovisual files on heterogeneous and distributed storage infrastructures that allows various strategies for content replication, integrity monitoring and repair to be developed and tested. Expand
Package Formats for Preserved Digital Material
TLDR
The concrete investigation is that the WARC format is the package format best suited for the listed requirements, and will ensure mitigating a number of risks of information loss. Expand
A Holistic Approach to Bit Preservation
TLDR
This paper takes a more holistic approach to bit preservation, and looks at how an optimal bit preservation strategy can be found, when requirements like confidentiality, availability and costs are taken into account. Expand
Examination of Data Deposit Practices in Repositories with the OAIS Model
Given the significance of the role of data in research and the value of data for long-term use, researchers have been discussing the need for archiving and curating research data for future studies.Expand
Preservation and Access in an Age of E-Science and Electronic Records: Sharing the Problem and Discovering Common Solutions
TLDR
Some of the core issues in digital preservation are offered, and an orientation to the problems that can be helpful in thinking about how to join forces with others on campus are suggested. Expand
Deciding how to decide: Using the Digital Preservation Storage Criteria
TLDR
The Digital Preservation Storage Criteria grew out of a community discussion at the 12th International Conference on Digital Preservation (iPRES 2015) on the evolving land... Expand
TEEM ’ 16 Fourth International Conference on Technological Ecosystems for Enhancing

Digital curation and costs: approaches and perceptions
TLDR
It is proposed a systematization of digital curation issues bridging the DCC life cycle view of the digital object curation to the OAIS reference model approach, using a cross view seized by cost models and plan/data management policies. Expand

Bit Preservation: A Solved Problem?
TLDR
This paper is in four parts: Claims, reviewing a typical claim of storage system reliability, showing that it provides no useful information for bit preservation purposes; theory, proposing “bit half-life” as an initial, if inadequate, measure of bit preservation performance; practice, reviewing recent research into how well actual storage systems preserve bits; policy, suggesting ways of dealing with this unfortunate situation. Expand
A fresh look at the reliability of long-term digital storage
TLDR
This model shows that the most important strategies for increasing the reliability of long-term storage are detecting latent faults quickly, automating fault repair to make it cheaper and faster, and increasing the independence of data replicas. Expand
A generic XML language for characterising objects to support digital preservation
TLDR
The eXtensible Characterisation Languages (XCL) are presented that support the automatic validation of document conversions and the evaluation of migration quality by hierarchically decomposing a document and representing documents from different sources in an abstract XML language. Expand
Digital Preservation Theory and Application: Transcontinental Persistent Archives Testbed Activity
  • P. Watry
