Visit us at this year’s Code4Lib conference in Washington, D.C.!

Portico will be presenting a poster called “Head in the cloud, or feet on the ground? Making preservation hardware platform choices.” You will learn about:

A two-year project to develop the next-generation architecture for the Portico archive of e-journals, e-books, and other electronic scholarly content was the occasion for Portico staff to step back and consider, not just what that architecture should be, but also where it should be. Should we continue to host all of our ingest, archiving, management, and access systems in our current data centers, or should we leverage the elasticity of established cloud infrastructures, with easy hardware scalability (both vertical and horizontal) as well as well-developed DevOps and other software tools? Come walk through the process Portico undertook to develop the criteria for making this choice, the decisions we reached, and why.

The poster session will be held on Thursday, 3:15 p.m. – 3:35 p.m. EST in the Foyer of the Regency Ballroom.

We hope to see you there!
