No. Not many people do. So when you archive data, how can you be sure you can read it when you need to decades later? Our portfolio company Arkivum has developed a new product on top of its core digital archiving solution to enable future-proof digital preservation and has just signed University of Westminster as it's first customer.
With a 175-year old collection of historical records from both its predecessor institutions and from donated materials, University of Westminster has faced the challenge to safeguard, preserve and provide global access to its digital and digitised collections using a cost-effective, state-of-the-art and end-to-end solution. Arkivum’s Perpetua is a digital preservation and access solution that can be deployed and operated as either cloud-based or on-site. Perpetua ensures digital files remain accessible and usable over decades or longer timescales and uses world-leading open-source tools such as Archivematica to provide preservation functionality.
