Harvard Dataverse and the MOC

Presentation Date: 

Tuesday, October 2, 2018


MOC Workshop, Boston Univeristy, MA

Presentation Slides: 

Both the talk and e-board on Harvard Dataverse and the Mass Open Cloud were presented at the MOC Workshop in Boston University on October 2, 2018.

Harvard Dataverse, with 30,000 deposited datasets and 250,000 data files, is one of the largest general purpose repositories open to researchers world-wide for sharing, citing, and archiving data. It currently runs on AWS. This talk will introduce our proposed plan to run Harvard Dataverse on the MOC, while still maintaining a copy on AWS for redundancy. Furthermore, these efforts can eventually provide a generic multi-cloud option for any Dataverse repository, where a repository can be easily replicated and synchronized when needed between (private or public) clouds.
