With CloudSync Fedora repositories can take advantage of DuraCloud—the only managed software service that lets organizations archive content across more than one cloud provider.

Ithaca, NY Fedora CloudSync is a new open source web-based utility for backing up and restoring Fedora content in DuraCloud that also syncs content between multiple Fedora repositories. It supports on-demand backups of any content in a Fedora repository.

Back-up your Fedora repository content wherever and whenever you want to keep a safe copy of irreplaceable documents, imagery and videos accessible in the cloud.  CloudSync also lets you restore selected parts of your data rather than having to restore all repository content.

Features

• Keep a backup of everything stored in Fedora, inside DuraCloud.

• After a backup is done, if content stored in Fedora is found to be corrupt, restore it from a backup in DuraCloud.

About Fedora

The Fedora Repository Project is under the stewardship of DuraSpace. Fedora (Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture) is used by global institutions to store, manage, and access digital content in the form of digital objects.  Fedora defines a set of abstractions for expressing digital objects, asserting relationships among digital objects, and linking "behaviors" (i.e., services) to digital objects. Fedora implements the Fedora abstractions in a robust open source software system providing a core repository service exposed as web-based services with well-defined APIs.
