English abstract

The Stanford Archival Repository Project aims to build a robust archiving system that can protect digital objects from failures over very long time spans. Objects are replicated among cooperating digital archives, so that if any archive fails its objects survive. We have designed an architecture for digital archives, and developed techniques for efficiently replicating objects to remote sites. We have also built simulation software that allows an archivist to design the most effective archiving system possible despite limited resources.
