== Description ==
<!-- Describe the what the tool does, focusing on it's digital preservation value. Keep it factual. -->
A second phased of Jisc funding resulted in a [http://libraryblogs.is.ed.ac.uk/jiscdatavault/demo/ working prototype] at the end of December 2015.
From the project website:
"Research Data is being generated at an ever-increasing rate. This brings challenges in how to store, analyse, and care for the data. Part of this problem is the long term stewardship of data and associated files that need a safe and secure home for the medium to long term.
This project, funded by the Jisc #DataSpring programme seeks to define and develop a Data Vault software system that will allow data creators to describe and store their data safely in one of the growing number of options for archival storage. This may include cloud solutions, shared storage systems, or local infrastructure."
== User Experiences ==
<!-- Add hotlinks to user experiences with the tool (eg. blog posts). These should illustrate the effectiveness (or otherwise) of the tool. Use a bullet list. -->
