Merritt Service Update: April 2013



Recent Enhancements, News, and Activities

  • Work is in‐progress and on track to migrate Merritt’s underlying technical infrastructure from physical servers to Virtual Machines (VM). (All UCOP services are moving to VMs.) We expect this work to be completed in June 2013.
  • The following related activities are also in‐progress and on track:
    • migrating collections from the legacy Digital Preservation Repository (DPR) to Merritt
    • transitioning storage from UCOP Data Center to San Diego Supercomputer Center’s Cloud Storage Service
  • For a current summary of 2013 development priorities for 2013, see the UC3 Curation Wiki:
