Arcitecta CTO presents to SGI DMF Users Group
Arcitecta CTO Jason Lohrey delivered a keynote presentation at the recent SGI DMF Users Group meeting at Monash University. The presentation was titled "Managing Your Digital Assets - The Crown Jewels", and discussed aspects of traditional file systems, structured databases and digital asset management.
A digital asset embodies an organisation's intellectual property, must often be accessible for a long time, needs open standards for exchange and may need to be repurposed in ways not previously envisaged. The present SGI LiveArc and DMF integration was described and a new "Archive File System" concept was outlined. The Archive File System will be able to "change shape" based on a user's authority, and view configuration, and automatically provide data to users in a transformed state.
