Dear Colleagues, 

We hope this message finds you healthy and in good spirits!

The EaaSI team is excited to release our fourth Training Module: “Emulation, Virtualization, Containerization.”

Every three months, a new training module supplements and expands on important concepts mentioned in the EaaSI User Handbook, opening the design and functionality of the platform to wider feedback, comment, and discussion.

The “Emulation, Virtualization, Containerization" training module covers:

  • Difference between emulation, virtualization, and containerization

  • Digital preservation implications of these three strategies; and 

  • How, why, and when does the EaaSI platform make use of each

View and download the “The Emulation, Virtualization, Containerization" Training Module 👉

The EaaSI program builds on previous work to apply the Emulation-as-a-Service (EaaS) framework for access and use of preserved software and digital objects. The project is focused on scaling the technological framework necessary for multiple institutions to configure, share, and access software and configured environments. EaaSI is focused on a distributed, community-driven architecture that sits on top of existing digital preservation infrastructure. This directly complements existing efforts by the Software Preservation Network and others to address key aspects of software preservation including legal advocacy, research about local software preservation needs, institutional capacity building for software preservation, collection development, professional development and training, and workflow recommendations.
