Webinar Recording: ARCHIVER: Sustainable Preservation of Petabyte Scale Scientific Data - Arkivum

Webinar recording: ARCHIVER Webinar: Sustainable Preservation of Petabyte Scale Scientific Data

The ARCHIVER project (Archiving and Preservation for Research Environments) has spent over 3 years designing, prototyping and piloting innovative new services for the Long-Term Digital Preservation (LTDP) of scientific datasets.

During the project, multiple data intensive organisations representing several research domains (CERN, DESY, PIC and EMBL-EBI) have worked closely and collaboratively with suppliers (Arkivum and LIBNOVA) on the research and development of new services and solutions for scientific data preservation relevant for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

This webinar recording beholds João Fernandes, the Project Leader for ARCHIVER from CERN and Matthew Addis, CTO of Arkivum discussing and sharing the experience and lessons learned during the project.

Topics included:

  • The benefits of a collaborative approach between end-users and commercial suppliers;
  • the challenges that were addressed along the way and the solutions that were created;
  • and what still needs to be done in order to realise the project vision of sustainable digital preservation services for the whole scientific community that address the needs of organisations both large and small.

This webinar recording came several months after the conclusion of the final Pilot phase of the ARCHIVER project, which made it an ideal time for us to share their insights and experiences with the wider LTDP community.

The ARCHIVER project was also recently recognised for its work within the digital preservation community by winning the Digital Preservation Coalition’s (DPC) Award for collaboration and cooperation.
