Archiving and preservation for research environments

Consortium 1


Arkivum and Google are designing and building a solution for long-term data management and online access as part of the ARCHIVER project, to address the challenges of how cloud hosted services can be used to store, manage, preserve and provide access to petabyte scale datasets. This will support research intensive organisations that are increasingly generating very large datasets that need to be digitally preserved and made accessible for others to use for the future. The solution is deployed onto the Google Cloud Platform.

The solution focuses on archiving using Trusted Digital Repository techniques and ensuring data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (i.e. adhering to the FAIR principles). The emphasis of the development is on cost-effective archiving and preservation that can meet the very large data volumes and high ingest rates from organisations such as CERN, DESY, EMBL-EBI and PIC.

An early version of the solution will be demonstrated over the coming months and a detailed blueprint for the ground-breaking new service will be created.
