iRODS software creates virtual collections, allowing the user to interact with their stored data without needing to keep track of, or even have ultimate control over, the storage and computing facilities hosting the information.

Planets Testbed offers a controlled, measured, part-automated and reproducible environment for the testing and evaluation of third-party preservation tools, and a forum for the empirical comparison and analysis of experimental results across the sector.

Plato is a preservation-planning tool for organisations charged with safeguarding digital materials.
