Moving to fully distributed interoperable repositories for biodiversity images and information

Overview

  • Long term goals

  • Update on Morphbank information interchange

  • Morphbank as an image repository, what’s the future?

  • Moving to a fully distributed image repository for Morphbank

    • Creating a highly reliable Internet repository

    • Caching images for dynamic image management

    • Distributing the Morphbank metadata

  • Moving to fully interoperable image repositories

    • Sharing images between repositories

    • Sharing metadata between repositories

    • Searching across repositories

  • What can we do to make this move?

Long-Term Goals

  • Fully distributed image repository

    • The network is the repository: nobody/everybody owns the repository

    • Cheap: commodity systems for storage

    • Scalability: more users - more storage space

    • Long-term archiving, minimum downtime, fast access: guaranteed by redundancy

  • Coordinated international open source development of collaboratory software

    • Free for all - best way to help developing countries

    • Resources exist but how coordinate and fund distributed open source development of sophisticated software?

    • Should TDWG get involved? Separate non-profit organization?

Reliable Data Repository

  • People ask, “How much do you charge and how long will you keep my images?

    • Last year, Riccardi said, “Forever, or until June 30, 2008, whichever comes first.”

  • Server system at Morphbank to support claim

    • UPS, 24 hour on-call system administrators, high-bandwidth network

  • New strategy is evolving to give more satisfying answer

    • “As long as people find it useful.”

  • We need low cost, reliable, shared management

    • Off-the-shelf hardware

    • Open source software

    • Resources provided by contributors at low cost

Summary

Summary

  • Morphbank mirror

    • You can participate

    • Computer with disk, network, Apache, ftp

  • Need some technical improvements

    • Will occur outside the biodiversity informatics community

  • Need people to agree to share

    • Provide resources

    • Make improvements to information process

  • Workshops at FSU

    • Interoperability for images and metadata – Fall 07

    • Developer interaction – Spring 08

      • Integrate clients and services on top of the morphbank data model
