Planets: integrated services for digital preservation


Adam Farquhar ,

Helen Hockx-Yu


Planets (Preservation and Long-term Access through NETworked Services) is a four-year research and technology development project co-funded by the European Union under the Sixth Framework Programme to address core digital preservation challenges. The primary goal for Planets is to build practical tools and services that will help ensure long-term access to large scale digital collections. This article describes Planets' approach to digital preservation and explains how it interacts with an organization's ingest, repository and delivery services. It also presents the deployment options of the Planets digital preservations software framework, and includes an overview of the project's progress to date.
