Truman Technologies spent 2012 consulting with EVault Long-Term Storage Service (EVault LTS2). Now, live, LTS2 is specifically designed to help you manage and preserve digital assets cost-effectively for long periods of time. LTS2 safeguards data integrity while providing immediate access and a low total cost of ownership (TCO) for long-term archiving.
This talk will focus on the essential elements of successful intelligent tiered storage management, in the context of long-term digital information retention and preservation.
Presenter: Ray Clarke, Storage Architect, Truman Technologies.
During the past 20 years, the prevalence of the open systems enterprises have grown along with the explosive growth of unstructured data, with requirements for that data to be preserved, in many cases indefinitely, yet remain readily accessible. The tiered storage model provides benefits of lower overall cost, lower energy, and lower floor space requirements. However, maximum environmental impact and ROI will now be achieved through expanded use of cloud technologies and intelligent tiered storage management. This talk will focus on the essential elements of successful intelligent tiered storage management, in the context of long-term digital information retention and preservation.
The DSA meeting brings together technical and industry experts; LC IT and subject matter experts; government specialists with an interest in preservation; decision-makers from a wide range of organizations with digital preservation requirements; and recognized authorities and practitioners of digital preservation. Invitation Only.

The Frick Art Reference Library in 2010 conducted a pilot project in partnership with the Internet Archive to capture born-digital content associated with art auctions. The project identified issues that need to be resolved before NYARC libraries move to a sustainable collecting program. To address the issues that arose during the Frick pilot project, the NYARC libraries engaged Truman Technologies to recommend what can be collected from a technical aspect, the best methods of web archiving, potential collaboration partners, and ways to address intellectual property, ethical, and access issues. http://www.infodocket.com/2013/04/18/new-york-art-resources-consortium-r... for more info -
