Preservica Adapter

The Preservica Adapter uses the Preservica SDB REST interface to retrieve object meta-data and their manifestations.

Note

Currently no random access to object manifestation data (e.g. ISOs) is possible. Therefore, images are downloaded (might take some time) and cached for fast subsequent access. EaaS does not enforce disk / space quotas on the filesystem hosting the cached images. Make sure to provide enough cache space and monitor space allocation.

Note

Currently each Preservica adapter configuration requires a single collection ID containing a flat hierarchy of Deliverable Unit which represents a renderable / usable object within EaaS and its unit ID will be used as objectID as internal metadata.

Example

{
        "type":"PRESERVICA",
        "defaultArchive":true,
        "name":"preservica",
        "collectionId":"collection-uuid",
        "sdbHost":"https://sdbmachine",
        "username":"eaas",
        "password":"secret"
}
