Hello all,

Apologies for cross posting.

We are in the early stages of moving towards better digital preservation,
and have a couple of questions.  We are hoping to move to Preservica or
another tool in the next year or two, so we are working on measures to get
us in good standing until that happens.

We are using the NDSA Levels of Preservation tool, trying to fully comply
with Level 1, and wonder if using Glacier counts as: 2 complete copies that
are not collocated.

Half of us think yes, the others no.

A colleague pointed out that the NDSA Levels were a few years old now, and
maybe did not reflect using the cloud for preservation.  Does anyone know
if this document will be updated in the future?

I would love to hear from others who are doing DIY preservation, using
Glacier (or not), and your thoughts, recommendations, or cautionary tales.
