Libraries are not typically known to be innovators when it comes to new technology however the National Library of Scotland became trail blazers when they looked for a new solution to the storage and archiving of valuable national cultural collections.
During the session you will have the opportunity to ask questions to our panel. You will also hear how:
- NLS broke tradition and ‘fake news’ with their innovative approach to data archiving and providing storage as a service to revolutionize libraries across the UK
- In an environment where there is large volumes of valuable data they needed a backup solution that was easy and quick to implement (to avoid any grey hair!). A solution capable of scaling up as data volumes and use cases increased
- NLS needed a system in place that protected them from the ever growing number ransomware attacks
Having set themselves an ambitious goal for the digitization of their collections NLS needed a new approach to holding, protection and making their vast amounts of data accessible to the public. Their story is both interesting and inspirational and we would like to share it with you.

Hear how National Library of Scotland embraced new technology to address the problems in their world of valuable data.
National Library of Scotland made the move to Scality RING after getting proposals from “all of the expected vendors.” They chose Scality RING as a foundation to their preservation storage strategy. In addition to providing the resilient S3-compatible storage they wanted, Scality further advanced the Library’s data integrity assurance model.
