      Description

      This issue is a placeholder for the Replication Task Suite, initially designed and built by Richard Rodgers / MIT.

      The primary goals of this project include:

      • Provide an easy way to (via the Curation Admin UI), replicate DSpace AIPs to external locations (filesystem, mounted drive, DuraCloud). Although this project uses the term "replicate", it provides a full suite of backup & restore tools including: backup AIP to external location, restore/recover from externally stored AIP, audit/compare external AIP to internal DSpace contents, etc. All of these tasks/tools are available via the Curation Admin UI.
      • Provide an extensible replication framework, which can be built upon, enhanced such that DSpace AIPs (of multiple formats or serializations) can be replicated/backed up to other storage areas (once an appropriate object store 'plugin' is created in the replication framework).

      The codebase for this Replication Task Suite is available at:
      http://scm.dspace.org/svn/repo/modules/dspace-replicate/

      This project is a collaboration between MIT (Richard Rodgers), DuraSpace (Tim Donohue), and @mire (Mark Diggory) and is hoped to be officially released in DSpace 1.8.0. Much of the initial code is "working" (thanks to Richard Rodgers), but needs further testing and possible enhancements before it is fully production-ready.

            Although this feature will be "compatible with 1.8.0", it will not be released "out-of-the-box" in DSpace 1.8.0. Instead, it will be optional, and you can install it separately as an "addon" (formal installation documentation forthcoming).
