The new DuraCloud 5.1.0 release resolves several issues and brings transfer improvements in the DuraCloud Sync and Retrieval tools. Support was also added for independent management of existing secondary storage providers, such as Amazon Glacier and Chronopolis dark archive network.

DuraCloud is a freely available open source platform, and also a hosted service that makes it easy to control where and how your organization preserves content in the cloud. DuraCloud enables your institution to store content with expert cloud storage providers while adding lightweight features that enable digital preservation, data access, and data sharing. The service is also available from 4Science via DuraCloud Europe.

A big thank you to the Texas Digital Library for their assistance in selecting tasks and working through issues in this release. Detailed release and deployment notes can be found on the DuraCloud GitHub repository.
