The SCAPE project developed scalable services for planning and execution of institutional preservation strategies on an open source platform that orchestrates semi-automated workflows for large-scale, heterogeneous collections of complex digital objects. SCAPE developed infrastructure and tools for scalable preservation actions, provided a framework for automated, quality-assured preservation workflows, and integrated these components with a policy-based preservation planning and watch system. These project results were validated within four large-scale Testbeds from diverse application areas. SCAPE has made a significant impact on the community and practice of digital preservation through
- scalability improvements on existing tools, for example Plato, and Fedora 4;
- new scalable tools like nanite, Hawarp, and C3PO;
- new tools for quality control like Jpylyzer, Pagelyzer, xcorrSound, and Matchbox;
- APIs for repository interoperability;
- dozens of Taverna workflows and Hadoop-based workflows;
- documented best practices;
- a high degree of take-up of project results at partner institutions and beyond.
