How to Preserve

Practical Cloud Archive

The Archive Working Group, a committee within the Entertainment Technology Center@the University of Southern California’s Adaptive and Virtual Production project, released its most recent white paper, Practical Cloud Archive, an ongoing exploration of digital asset preservation challenges, proposing “a number of avenues to introduce cloud storage and cloud technology as part of an overall archive solution, without compromising the basic tenets of preservation.” Led by co-chair Denis Leconte, VP of technology at Iron Mountain Entertainment Services, the paper is the next step toward the continuing process to study “more precise experimental data on cloud storage characteristics in terms of durability as measured using the fixity process” as discussed in the ETC's previous white paper, Guideline for the Preservation of Digital Audio-Visual Assets in the Cloud.
