Lessons from a real large scale digital preservation system
While much is written about digital preservation, anyone looking to deliver a real system for large scale digital preservation will find little information about the realities of successfully delivering such a system. In his talk at PASIG 2012, Jason Pierson does just this. He describes FamilySearch’s ambitious project to digitise and preserve their vast collection of genealogical information. In particular he outlines the approach taken and the solutions found to the problems of preserving petabytes of information on tape.
