Section: Big Data Infrastructure & Processing Technical level: Beginner Session type: Lecture
Using Internet Archive as a case study, this talk presents aspects of big data in the context of long-term preservation.
The Internet Archive is one of the earliest organizations to work with petabytes of data. It built its own infrastructure to store, process and manage its data reliably, much before the cloud. Being an archive, preservation of data is the primary concern and it affects engineering decisions.
This talk is an introduction to the Internet Archive and its infrastructure.
