Andrew Woods, DuraSpace technical lead and developer, presented a poster with details about DuraCloud, the open source managed cloud service that lets organizations archive content across more than one cloud provider.
 
Quyen Nguyen, Management Office at the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) introduced the Long-Term Digital Preservation as a Service (LDPaaS) project. He noted, “Unlike companies which are required to retain their records for a relatively short period of time to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, national archives and digital libraries have to face daunting challenges of (large scale and) long-term preservation.”

Hypatia is a cross-institutional initiative to create a Hydra application (Fedora, Hydra, Solr, Blacklight) that supports the acessioning, arrangement/description, delivery and long term preservation of born digital collections.  Hypatia partners include the University of Virginia, University of Hull, Stanford and Yale. This useful “Hydra head” has the ability to meet a community need for management of Encoded Archival Descriptions (EADs).
