“Out-of-the-box” digital preservation and access solution helps government meet the challenge of future-proofing records in the cloud
Oxford, UK | 2 August 2016 | Digital preservation specialist, Preservica, has announced that its secure, cloud hosted digital preservation solution, Preservica Cloud Edition, is now available via the G-Cloud 8 Digital Marketplace.
Preservica Cloud Edition combines preservation and access in one system, simplifying the task of safeguarding and providing secure public access to government records and materials. It is built around the same Preservica digital preservation technology used by the UK National Archives and includes connectivity with Axiell CALM and Microsoft SharePoint and Outlook.
“We’re very encouraged by the uptake and interest in Preservica Cloud Edition, particularly from local government,” says Preservica Chief Executive Jon Tilbury. “G-Cloud is a great opportunity for government to capitalise on the cost savings and operational efficiencies offered by the cloud and is making it easier than ever before for public bodies to take advantage of secure cloud hosted digital preservation to protect and future-proof vital long-term and permanent government records.”
UK Public Sector organisations already using Preservica’s digital preservation software include the UK National Archives, the UK Met Office, Transport for London, the Oxfordshire History Centre, the Suffolk Record Office and the Dorset History Centre, part of Dorset County Council.
Mark Lawrence, History Centre Manager, Oxfordshire History Centre comments: “Using Preservica in the cloud provides us with a secure and cost-effective way to ensure our important digital content and records remain accessible and useable over the long-term. Purchasing through G-Cloud really helped simplify and speed up the procurement process.”
Preservica Cloud Edition includes a full suite of OAIS (Open Archival Information Systems) conforming workflows for ingest, management, storage, access and active preservation of digital content, as well as hosting, backup, operations, software maintenance and support.
