The Hawke’s Bay Digital Archive's Trust trustees and working team took into account streamlining and standardisation of procedures, consistency of training and operation for volunteers from all walks of life.
Utilising open-source software allowed the trustees to keep to a budget also stretched by the vast costs of restoring the fabric of Stoneycroft Homestead.
The aim of the trust is a digital encyclopedia of people and places, education, cultural, sporting, industrial and commercial achievements of yesterday linked with those of today.
The material is being preserved for posterity, but will always be available to the public on a daily basis. The material is being backed up and replicated across sites within New Zealand.
We use the following technologies to preserve and record all our digital history; Ubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, VMWare, Veeam, Drupal, Apache Solr, OwnCloud, HandBrake, Zimbra, LTSP, Asterisk and Google Applications.
