Duraspace was founded in 2009 with merger of DSpace and Fedora Commons, two organizations providing data repository infrastructure for the academic and scientific communities. Fedora Commons grew out of work at Cornell University into a nonprofit organization with seed funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Its goal was to build a community of users dedicated to developing open source software solutions for digital content management. DSpace was a joint effort by Hewlett Packard and MIT to develop a digital repository for long-term storage, access and preservation of research and scholarly content.
Today, Duraspace provides leadership and innovation for open technologies that promote access to digital data. Its portfolio crosses institutional systems, the Web and cloud-based infrastructure to address durability of digital content, powering thousands of repository instances in more than 100 countries. One product, DuraCloud, is an open source platform and managed subscription service for archiving, sharing and managing cloud-based content. Another, Fedora, is a framework for building digital repositories. DSpaceDirect, is a low-cost, turnkey repository to organize and store academic faculty and student papers, projects and research.
Thank you for sharing.
Creating positive outcomes for future generations.
