Sync Tool: The Sync Tool is a utility which will allow you to transfer (or "copy") files from a local file system to DuraCloud and subsequently keep the files in DuraCloud synchronized with those on the local system. Note that the chunker tool's capabilities are available in the sync tool. The Sync Tool can be run in one of two modes: Command Line or GUI.
Retrieval Tool: The Retrieval Tool is a utility which will allow you to transfer (or "retrieve") digital content from DuraCloud to your local file system. Not that the stitcher tool capabilities are available in the retrieval tool.
Chunker Tool: The Chunker Tool is a utility which will allow you to copy large files from a local file system to DuraCloud in a "one-off" manner and "chunk" those files into a size specified by you.
Stitcher Tool: The Stitcher Tool is a utility which will allow you to retrieve chunked files from DuraCloud and have those files "stitched" back together on your local file system.
The most up-to-date DuraCloud documentation can be found here. DuraCloud documentation is updated after every DuraCloud release, and also contains training materials, videos, webinars, presentations, as well as information about integration and community projects.
Fedora CloudSync: Fedora CloudSync is a web-based utility for backing up and restoring Fedora content in DuraCloud. It supports on-demand and scheduled backups of any content in a Fedora repository, including externally-managed datastreams. The project is currently in beta phase.
DSpace Replication Task Suite: The DSpace Replication Task Suite is a set (suite) of tasks to assist in performing replication of DSpace content to other locations (including DuraCloud). Currently, DSpace content is packaged in containers known as archival information packages (AIPs). The DSpace Replication Task Suite was released as an optional "add-on" to DSpace 1.8.
