CURATEcamp 2010

Working page for use cases in curation microservices

Penn State Libraries has launched a pilot project focused on developing curation microservices, and this page is for gathering/developing/commenting on use cases for driving such microservices. This page can also include resources that inform our understanding and development of use cases. We welcome contributions from our colleagues engaged in digital curation activities toward getting a firmer sense of how to collect effective use cases.


Feedback notes

Changes requested for next camp
  • more time for intro to micro-services
  • more room to describe a session topic than just a post-it
  • shorter times slots, esp. for lightning talks that won't take an hour
  • break between hour slots
  • do report-outs from sessions
  • work harder to solicit interesting stuff that people are doing (some people are shy)
  • code code code -- bring code plus docs to next meeting

CurateCamp 2010: Use Cases

Strategic plan for content stewardship at Penn State. In order to
implement digital management, they want to find curation services that
would meet those needs.

There are few use cases on ingest, management, etc. that can be
applied to developing and automating things for a microservices

CURATEcamp 2010: Replication Breakout 8.16.10

David Minor - Session Moderator

Chronopolis - NDIIPP Program - active mgmt - SRB/iRods takes care of the replication.

Is it peer-to-peer or master-slave relationship?

Mark Phillips: microservices approach at UNTexas. Assumptions: boundaries of an object

Arsenic and a Cron job to replicate files doesn't necessarily work
because of physical drive arrangements between two sets of servers.
Instead they use a manifest and walk it to move the files.
