One of the activities in the European project SCAPE is to create a catalogue of policy elements. At the last iPRES conference we explained our work and you can read about it .
Last week someone pointed my attention to a recent iPres paper by Roman Graf and Sergiu Gordea titled "A Risk Analysis of File Formats for Preservation Planning". The authors propose a methodology for assessing preservation risks for file formats using information in publicly available information sources. In short, their approach involves two stages:
For our evaluations within SCAPE it would be useful to have the ability to quantitatively measure the abilities of the Hadoop clusters available to us, to allow results from each cluster to be compared.
Fortunately as part of the standard Hadoop distribution there are some examples included that can be run as tests. Intel has produced a benchmarking suite - HiBench - that uses those included Hadoop examples to produce a set of results.
One of the Open Planets Foundation’s main roles in the SCAPE project is to provide stewardship for, and ensure longevity of the SCAPE software outputs.
