The CREDO Project

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 700)


The chapter describes main assumptions of the project Digital Document Repository CREDO, which resulted in design and implementation of a long-term digital archive of significant capacity, conforming to OAIS standard, with packaging preserved resources in archival packages, and metadata management. The archive ensures storage correctness and devices reliability monitoring. Thanks to sophisticated scheduling of archive operations, energy efficiency is also provided. A discussion is presented how the CREDO archive meets the requirements, which are usually applied to long-term digital archives.
