Preservica celebrates growth in Cloud Edition user community with new lower priced subscription plans

New plans will enable organizations to get started for less, and preserve more as their needs grow.

Washington, US and Oxford, UK | Thursday 21st May 2015 | Preservica, a world leader in digital preservation technology, research and consulting, is celebrating the rapid growth of the Preservica Cloud Edition user community, which now includes a vibrant mix of universities, colleges, public libraries, museums, state and government organizations, and business archives, by announcing new lower priced subscription plans to enable organizations to get started in Digital Preservation for less, and preserve more as their storage needs scale and grow.

The popularity of Preservica’s Cloud hosted Digital Preservation and Access solution, particularly with smaller and mid-size institutions, is in part down to its intuitive, integrated OAIS (Open Archival Information Systems) workflows, and the overall value and breadth of its out-of-the-box” functions. These benefits were remarked on in the recent IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) funded report by POWWR (Preserving digital Objects with Restricted Resources) in which Preservica was the only solution to fully address all 21 functions in the POWRR evaluation Grid.

In particular, Preservica Cloud Edition provides the six essential functions of an OAIS Cloud hosted Digital Preservation solution: Full Active Preservation, including file management & migration post-ingest; Preservation & Access in one system, saving time money and duplicated content; Tools for the easy and reliable upload of large files (10s of GBs); Flexible and cost-effective storage management — fast Amazon S3 for frequently accessed presentation content and/​or low-Cost Amazon Glacier for infrequently accessed preservation content; Sophisticated control over user roles & access rights down to an individual record level; and a wide range of connectors for popular ECM/RM, email, catalog and digital library systems, including Microsoft SharePoint and Outlook.

Preservica Chief Executive Jon Tilbury adds The on-going success of Preservica Cloud Edition means we are able to pass on savings that benefit the community as a whole — making it easier for other organizations to join and get started in Digital Preservation, as well as enabling existing users to preserve more as their storage needs scale over time. The continued growth of the Cloud Edition user community also opens up new opportunities for users to collaborate and share experiences with others through regular user group meetings and the online community portal, helping to shape the future of Digital Preservation in the Cloud”.
