Different Mass Processing Services in a Bit Repository

    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleResearchpeer-review


    This paper investigates how a general bit repository mass processing service using different programming models and platforms can be specified. Such a service is needed in large data archives, especially libraries, where different ways of doing mass processing is needed for different digital library tasks. Different hardware platforms as basis for mass processing will usually already exist for libraries as part of a bit preservation solution for long term bit preservation. The investigation of a general mass processing service shows that different aspects of mass processing are too dependent on the execution environment to allow the service to be defined in details, but service parameters and organizational issues can be identified.
