Fedora Version 3.8 Migration

Fedora Commons logoThe Library Software Engineering Team, Libraries & Information Technology Services: Library Systems Team, Scholarly Communications Office, Emory Center for Digital Scholarship, and Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library performed a very intricate and significant migration of the data repository that is used for our production applications that include Electronic Theses and Dissertations, OpenEmory, The Keep, Readux, Rushdie, and Beck Center’s Great War Site.

The impetus for the migration is the upcoming Hydra implementation, which is part of the Digital Library Program. The migration was of the Fedora operating system from version 3.4 to version 3.8. It is a necessary stepping-stone and will provide a number of security and stability improvements and bug fixes for our applications.

This team exemplified mature collaboration, cohesiveness and brought their expertise throughout the adversity of many unknowns that occurred as a result of our first ever attempt to upgrade this repository.

Thanks go to James Bias, Steve Collins, Kevin Glover, Rebecca Koeser, Mike Mitchell, Bethany Nash, Sara Palmer, Fran Pici, Mark Prefer, Kelly Resignola, Elizabeth Roke, Alex Thomas, and Jay Varner.

The team would like to extend a special thank you to Alan White and Eric Wagner for their help during critical moments in our deployment.
