Tools for modelling and simulating migrationbased preservation
Addis, Matthew and Jacyno, Mariusz (2010) Tools for modelling and simulating migrationbased preservation. Southampton, GB, University of Southampton; Prestoprime Consortium, 56pp.
This report describes two tools for modelling and simulating the costs and risks of using IT storage systems for the long-term archiving of file-based AV assets. The tools include a model of storage costs, the ingest and access of files, the possibility of data corruption and loss from a range of mechanisms, and the impact of having limited resources with which to fulfill access requests and preservation actions. Applications include archive planning, development of a technology strategy, cost estimation for business planning, operational decision support, staff training and generally promoting awareness of the issues and challenges archives face in digital preservation.
