Archiving research data in the cloud or in a local repository Michele Kimpton, CEO DuraSpace CNI Dec 2014
Common issues Where can I put my data for long term access? How do I make it discoverable, re-useable, reproducible? What metadata, provenance and identifiers should I use? What policies should be in place for archiving and preserving data? How do I fund this?
Data management in DSpace DOI support- EZID ORCID integration Linked open data support Integrated with DuraCloud New features in DSpace 5.0 related to Data Management and archiving https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/DSpace+Release+5.0 +Status
Data management in Fedora Supports linked open data Content modeling Versioning Large files Fixity checking External, asynchronous storage
Commercial based cloud solutions Three popular commercial solutions Attract end users because solves immediate need without adding a ton of work to end user Share, collaborate or meet mandate by publisher or funding agency Little to no preservation practices in place No stated or unstated longterm data management practices Long term at risk reliant on investors interest and success in the market Lack of trust and control within academic community
Community based cloud solutions
Benefits of networked solutions Web based access, easy to access Can easily replicate content via standard Internet protocols and API’s Requires no infrastructure at local facility Can expose content outside of institution Can provide geographical distribution Provides solution for those that can not afford to build locally
Questions to consider for any hosted solution Is it open source? Are the policies transparent? What is the governance? Are there policies and practices in place to “actively” preserve the data? Is there an “exit” strategy for the user? Are the formats open and standard? Who has rights to the data ?
