Abstract

Request #1: Cannot attend 4 April, would have to present 3 April Request #2: Final paper is not yet complete and approved. Hoping I can get an extension. === Rapid growth of digital content is driving the need for a new approach to preserving and managing archived data. With vast stores of data that must be preserved for many decades to come, many organizations are finding it costly to maintain the integrity of their data and are challenged by the complexity of storing content in a way that enables users to easily find and retrieve what they need. Sun has partnered with Fedora Commons to create a solution that can help organizations store, manipulate, and access their digital resources in a flexible and cost- effective manner. This solution combines the Fedora open source software platform with the Sun StorageTek[TM] 5800 system to provide a petabyte- scale object store that greatly simplifies the task of preserving massive amounts of data over long periods of time. The Sun StorageTek[TM] 5800, codenamed \"Honeycomb\", is a third-generation object storage system that has been designed to address today’s large -scale repository needs. In combination with the Fedora platform, it can provide a powerfully intelligent data repository for applications that generate and retain large volumes of data. This paper will describe the direction Sun and Fedora Commons are taking with this promising combination of technologies. We will review the work done to date, the expected long-term advantages to this approach, current Proof of Concept deployments, as well as future plans.
