PuntStore: A Non-relational Database Based Architecture of Data Management in Digital Library
In big data era, traditional architecture of digital library needs to deal with massive, complex, heterogeneous and continuous changing data. This paper proposes PuntStore, a novel architecture based on NoSQL database PuntDB. PuntStore improves and optimizes many aspects of traditional digital resource management systems, including more flexible, efficient in meta-data management, digital content storage and label management. PuntStore has been deployed successfully to Chinese Science and Technology History library and solved the issue of managing the heterogeneous and complex metadata. Test results shows that PuntStore could be an effective solution of similar application scenarios.
