To familiarize the users of Fedora with the new service DuraCloud, the team of DuraSpace is hosting a free webinar about the use and handling of the client Fedora Cloudsync. The aim is to communicate how backups from Fedora to DuraCloud are working and how the two systems can be integrated. Chris Wilper, technical director of Fedora, will lead through the webinar on the 1/11/12 at 1:00pm EST (19Uhr MET).
DuraCloud is a Cloud Web Service, which allows a central and easy backup or archiving on WebCloud services. The service is monitoring the database of the connected repository and is mirroring the data on the chosen cloud services. The data will kept synchronal between the different services and health checks will be made to secure the data quality. DuraCloud is offering additional video-, audio- or imagescreening, where the multimedia file is streamed directly to the computer of the user of the repository, without the need of any installed instance on the repository server.
DuraCloud is offering a free two month trial to the new year. During this period the costly service can be tested for its functionality.
