Migrate WAS collections to Merritt Storage
Merritt Storage and Legacy Infrastructure: WAS 3.6.3
WAS content is currently stored in a separate instance of the Digital Preservation Repository, inheriting the digital preservation features such as fixity checking to provide secure archival storage. WAS content will be migrated from the Digital Preservation repository to Merritt’s improved storage environment. This work will be significantly more demanding than the DPR migration, as the scale of content is much higher, and WAS is a dynamic, growing system. WAS will emerge with more flexible storage location options, improved preservation of metadata associated with web archives, and a storage system better able to support significant future growth.
