Digital Preservation Network (DPN)
After a considerable planning and development effort, the Digital Preservation Network (DPN) officially began accepting content submissions in 2016. The journey into production operation required that many hurdles, both technical and administrative, be overcome and that the procedures surrounding long-term distributed digital preservation be defined. This talk will provide an update on some of the critical choices that were made, what content has been submitted to date, and the process needed to make those submissions possible. We will also explore lessons learned by DPN and DuraCloud Vault, one of the DPN nodes, in this first year in production.
