"DuraCloud is a managed software service that lets organizations archive content across multiple cloud providers "

"DuraCloud is a hosted service and open technology developed by DuraSpace that makes it easy for organizations and end users to use cloud services. It is a cloud-based service that leverages existing cloud infrastructure to enable durability and access to digital content. The service is particularly focused on providing preservation support and access services for academic libraries, academic research centers, and other cultural heritage organizations. DuraCloud builds on pure storage from expert storage providers by overlaying the access functionality and preservation support tools that are essential to ensuring long-term access and ease of use. DuraCloud offers cloud storage and replication of content across multiple providers, via one web-accessible interface."

"DuraCloud is the only service that makes it easy to move copies of your content into the cloud and store them with several different providers, all with just one click. We eliminate the risk of storing content with a single cloud provider by making it easy to move and copy files of any size or format."

"DuraCloud can stream video and audio files directly from DuraCloud to any internet-linked device. Users like the media streaming service because the videos load quickly. You will like it because it doesn't tie up your servers. The DuraCloud media streamer is based on Amazon’s Cloudfront service which uses the Flash Media Server to host streaming files over RTMP in MP3, MP4, FLV, and other formats. It is designed to allow for easily embedding media in your web site and has several options for customization."
