In Focus: A guide to collection hosting with Veridian

Hello friend of Veridian,

This month we explain some of the key considerations for choosing where to host your digital collection.
To host or not to host?
As we build each new Veridian digital collection our clients can choose to either host the website themselves or delegate the task for us to manage and support.

The decision can depend on a number of factors such as an organization's budget, the size of their collection, and whether or not they have the in-house technical resource needed to maintain a server.

This article explains some of the key considerations for how to approach the question: To host or not to host?

When we provide a quote for a building a collection on the Veridian platform there are two pricing models:

The Software as a Service (SaaS) model
  • You pay a one-off setup and installation fee for your site
  • The site is hosted by Veridian on Amazon Cloud Servers
  • We take care of data preservation
  • You pay an annual hosting fee which includes support and maintenance and the Veridian software license

2. The Veridian Software Licensing model
  • You purchase the perpetual use of the software with a one-off fee which includes customization of the site
  • Your collection is hosted on your own server and maintained by your IT team
  • Data preservation is handled in-house by your team
  • An annual support and maintenance fee ensures Veridian support which is optional after the first year

Does outsourcing hosting cost more?

Maybe not. Due to economies of scale outsourced hosting may actually cost less than owning your own servers...
Until next month, best wishes from the Veridian team
Stefan, Michael, Jeffrey, Andrew, Richard, Pei, Shane, Miriam, Ryan and Wayne.
