The Digital Curation Innovation Center at the University of Maryland's iSchool will research, develop, and test software architectures to improve the performance and scalability of the Fedora repository. This project will create a new Fedora implementation without current performance bottlenecks relating to storage size, enabling institutions to manage Fedora repositories with petabyte-scale collections. It will apply the new Fedora 5 application programming interface (API) to a repository software stack called DRAS-TIC. Fedora community partners will be engaged to help develop use cases and performance expectations. The project will produce open source software, tested system configurations, documentation, and best-practice guides.
