A renewed investment in preservation infrastructure
In the decade since Portico launched, both the scale and type of preservation work we do has evolved. The volume of scholarly content ingested each year has grown from 160,000 archival objects in 2006 to over 98.5 million in 2018. At Portico, we are committed to investing in and improving our systems and capabilities in order to keep up with the constantly changing environment.
Thanks to the support of our publisher and library participants, we recently completed a two-year project to rebuild our preservation infrastructure from the ground up. This initiative allowed us to create a stable, scalable, elastic architecture that will enable Portico to keep pace with ever-increasing amounts of content. It will also allow us to provide preservation for new and complex forms of scholarly publishing.
