  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 Impact ” wor kshop, May 26 2009, Birzeit University Library, Palestine
  2. 2. H ardware <ul><li>What sort of does DSpace require? What about sizing the server? How much disk space do I need? </li></ul><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, </li></ul><ul><li>the Tomcat Servlet engine, </li></ul><ul><li>and the postgreSQL relational database system… </li></ul>
  3. 3. H ardware 2 <ul><li>http ://www.dspace.org/index.php?/FAQ/FAQ.html#hardware </li></ul><ul><li>“ For your convenience, we package the necessary JDBC and other drivers and libraries together with DSpace. This set of tools should run on any UNIX-type OS, such as Linux, HP/UX, or Solaris, and you can substitute other libraries if you need to run on another platform. </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>
  4. 4. H ardware 3 <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>
  5. 5. H ardware 4 <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>
