Summary

Archivists have different requirements for the long-term storage of data. Yet they do want to store data on "the grid". In this talk we will present a system that was developed for the Dutch Data Archiving and Network Services (DANS) archivists.

Impact

For archivists this is one of the first end-user systems to reliably store data on "the grid".

Description

Archivists have different requirements for the long-term storage of data. Yet they do want to store data on "the grid". To an archivist it is extremely important that data stored is intact and remains intact.
In this talk we will present a system that was developed for the Dutch Data Archiving and Network Services (DANS) archivists.
This system allows DANS archivists to upload data to the grid in a simple way and to periodically check that all data is still valid, by checksumming all files stored.
