New York's Museum of Modern Art is using an integrated Arkivum / Archivematica system to preserve and archive 5.4PB of digitised audio-visual artworks.
As part its Archives and Access project, Tate is preserving and archiving 52,000 new digital assets using an on-site deployment of 80TB of Arkivum storage.
Kew is implementing Arkivum/100 and integrating it with the Aetopia Digital Asset Management system to facilitate the sharing of digital images and digitised text.
An Arkivum-based preservation system... what do you get?
1. For long-term (10+ years) and large-scale (PB) archives, a tape-based system from Arkivum is a factor of ten more economical than cloud / disk alternatives.
2. On-site at your location, or as a managed service, an Arkivum-based digital preservation system guarantees the integrity, trustworthiness and authenticity of your data.
3. With the Arkivum 100% data integrity guarantee, higher standards of digital preservation best practices can be readily achieved.
preserving and archiving our digitised assets
The Arkivum system provides Kew with 100TB of archive storage over 8 years with future storage expansion of a similar size expected in the near future.
