Description

Preserving a full computer system for long-term access is in some cases the option of last resort. In these situations the system consists of complex workflows and tool-chains paired with custom configuration such that the dismantling of individual components is too time consuming or even impossible to be carried out. For such situations a defined system-preservation workflow is required, ideally integrated into a digital preservation framework to ensure future rendering ability and quality.
This demonstration presents an integrated system-preservation workflow, designed to be performed by non-technical users and to ensure long-term access (e.g. through emulation) with guaranteed system properties. Furthermore, the workflow leverages a distributed framework, enabling on-site preservation tasks, while making use of a common shared knowledge base and ready-made access preview technologies.
