ABOUT itmz uNIVERSITY Challenges
The IT and media center (ITMZ) of the University of Rostock, in cooperation with the university library, is
experiencing a constantly growing need from users for long-term digital archiving of research and library data.
ITMZ needs to fulfill new requirements in the archiving processes. In the future, for certain archives, it could
be necessary not only to create a media break, but even to implement external offline archiving (cloud or colocation) of storage media.
