Setting up repositories

  1. 1. Setting up repositories: Technical Requirements, Repository Software, Metadata & Workflow. Repository services Iryna Kuchma, eIFL Open Access program manager, eIFL.net Presented at “ Open Access: Maximising Research Quality and Impact ” wor kshop, July 2 3 2009, Kathmandu, Nepal
  2. 2. H ardware <ul><li>Repositories can sit on dedicated servers, shared services or as virtual machines on larger servers. </li></ul><ul><li>In the first few years a basic or moderately specified server will perform sufficiently. </li></ul><ul><li>(Repositories Support Project) </li></ul>
  3. 3. H ardware 2 <ul><li>In order to re-cycle apparently obsolete computers </li></ul><ul><li>and transform the ageing PCs </li></ul><ul><li>into high-speed multi-purpose library terminals </li></ul><ul><li>using open source software </li></ul><ul><li>you can use the LTSP guide </li></ul><ul><li>“ Extending the life of older computer hardware </li></ul><ul><li>in your library: How to Set Up a Linux Terminal Server Project Installation”, the Birzeit University Library Experience by Dr. Wasel Ghanem, Head of Computer Systems, and Mrs. Diana Sayej-Naser, Library Director, Birzeit University </li></ul>
  4. 5. H ardware 3 <ul><li>http://www. dspace .org/index. php ?/FAQ/FAQ.html#hardware </li></ul><ul><li>“ There are no specific server requirements for DSpace except UNIX. </li></ul><ul><li>(Because the application is written in Java, </li></ul><ul><li>in theory it will run on other platforms as well.) </li></ul><ul><li>DSpace is built on top of free, open-source tools, </li></ul><ul><li>such as the Apache Web server, the Tomcat Servlet engine, and the postgreSQL relational database system… </li></ul><ul><li>The system runs on anything from a laptop to a $500K server, but there are a few general recommendations for hardware architectures… </li></ul>
  5. 6. H ardware 4 <ul><li>http://www. dspace .org/index. php ?/FAQ/FAQ.html#hardware </li></ul><ul><li>“ For a research university, DSpace requires a reasonably good server and a decent amount of memory and disk storage. Some examples from the community (not necessarily endorsements): </li></ul><ul><li>HP Server rx2600, powered by dual 64-bit Intel Itanium 2 processors (900MHz), 2GB RAM, 26 GB internal disk storage. HP StorageWorks Modular SAN Array 1000 (msa1000) with a single high-performance controller. Options include a second controller and, with the addition of two more drive enclosures, controls up to 42 Ultra2, Ultra 3, or Ultra320 SCSI drives. Total capacity can be six terabytes… </li></ul>
  6. 7. H ardware 5 <ul><li>http :// www . dspace . org / index . php ?/FAQ/FAQ. html # hardware </li></ul><ul><li>“ SunFire 280R Server, two 900MHz UltraSPARC-III Cu processors, 8MB E-cache, 2GB memory, two 36GB 10,000rpm HH internal FCAL disk drives, DVD, 436-GB, or 12 x 26.4 Gbyte 10K RPM disks, Sun StorEdge A1000 rackmountable w/ 1 HW RAID controller, 24MB std cache. </li></ul><ul><li>Dell PowerEdge 2650 with dual Xeon processors (2.4GHz), 2GB RAM, 2x73GB scsi disks. One 2.5TB Apple XServe. A DLT tape library to back up the DB/jsps etc. Of course, your mileage (and costs) will vary depending on what you plan to do with the system… ” </li></ul>
  7. 8. H ardware & Software <ul><li>Apart from the obvious computer equipment needed to set up a repository, </li></ul><ul><li>e.g. server, storage space, network connection, it is the software that is installed </li></ul><ul><li>and the web interface for users </li></ul><ul><li>that determines what a repository </li></ul><ul><li>looks like for most people </li></ul><ul><li>(Repositories Support Project) </li></ul>
