  1. 1. KAPTUR Working in stages with Figshare and DataStageParallel Session 2B: Data Repositories and Storage Carlos Silva Visual Arts Data Services 24 October 2012
  2. 2. Technical Analysis Report• Two different systems – DataStage to EPrints – Figshare to EPrints
  3. 3. • Pros • Cons – Upload tool – Sustainability – WebDAV – Pricing models – Open API • Cost / user / record when not publicly available – SWORD2 – Commercial approachCurrently in negotiations about pricing model and the type of the development workneeded from Figshare
  4. 4. • Pros – Institutionally based – Open Source under MIT license – SWORD2• Cons – Sustainability – Currently in Beta Version – SWORD2 not fully working with other repositories others than DataBank
  5. 5. • What has worked/is working – Both systems have been tested separately, and both systems have performed well – SWORD2 between two same systems has worked just fine – Costing model• Lessons learned so far… – Sustainability is key when looking in the medium – long term for every software – When working with beta versions further testing time needs to be allowed in order to fix unexpected errors – Collaboration from other institutions is key – As well as collaboration from similar projects working on the same goal
  6. 6. • Challenges remaining and what we intend to do – Integration between DataFlow and EPrints using SWORD2 • Issues with the SWORD submission on the DataStage side need to be solved – Feedback from Project Officers on whole integration – SWORD2 was envisioned to fully work with DataStage and EPrints when it becomes available and that previous versions of DataStage managed to work okay with EPrints – Assess upgrades issues from partner institutions using a kulturized version of EPrints• Activities needed – Gathering developers and experts in SWORD2 to look at the main issue of transferring data across multiple repositories or systems (Hackatlon) – Getting external help with SWORD 2 if needed (ask advisors)
