Preserving, sharing rare Medieval texts with IBM Big Data solution

An Big Data management solution consisting of IBM System x servers and IBM Storage is being used to preserve and digitize more 800,000 pages of European historical documents, including medieval manuscripts, at the Wroclaw University Library in Poland.

 

Shown here is "The Great Missal", from the Church of Mary Magdalene in Wroclaw, circa 1470, part of the Wroclaw University Library archives being digitized and made available online for the first time with IBM technology.
