Abstract

This poster describes an integrated solution with proven success for large-scale repositories at well known institutions such as Johns Hopkins and Purdue University. It can track millions of XML objects in Fedora with capacity to seamlessly scale to hundreds of terabytes with the Sun StorageTek 5800 system (\"Honeycomb\"). High data integrity is achieved through automatic block and file level checksums and distribution of file fragments across nodes to ensure no single point of failure. Extreme data protection is provided with a redundant design that allows multiple nodes and drives to fail without any resultant data loss.
