Mr. Rick Landau, Research Affiliate, will present a briefing at the Boston Python Users Group meeting on the topic of simulating document loss .
Durable access to information requires insuring against multiple risks such as media failures, format obsolescence, fires, floods, earthquakes,
institutional failures, mergers, funding cuts, and malicious insiders. Real libraries need empirical guidance on storage strategies and costs -- and vendor claims of reliability are often uninformative, or suspect. The talk describes how event-based simulations, coded in python, are used to simulate document loss under a variety of risks profiles, and to provide practical guidance.
This meeting will be held at the Microsoft NERD building, 1 Memorial Drive, and is open to the public. More information is available through the meeting web page:
