ISLE: Islandora Installation Simplified

Islandora is an open source digital repository stack developed at the University of Prince Edward Island and now implemented and contributed to by an international community. 17 institutions working with a partner vendor, Born-Digital, are collaboratively creating a sustainable mode of installing, maintaining and updating Islandora that reduces dependencies on expert technical staff. Islandora Enterprise (ISLE) utilizes a set of Docker images to orchestrate an Islandora 7.x stack and keep its systems and services current, secure, and running with minimal effort. By design, ISLE separates an institution's data and customizations from its core systems, moving core components into Docker images. This simplifies and automates installation and maintenance for Islandora/Fedora environments. Individuals, institutions, and communities of practice all benefit: ISLE is an automated, reliable, redundant, and secure way to immediately use the Islandora stack to its fullest potential. ISLE continues to develop into a robust Docker ecosystem, introducing features and options that otherwise would require expert configuration.

The workshop will introduce the mechanics of ISLE, and use it to spin up a full Islandora 7.x stack (documentation and friendly ISLE teachers included).Participants with a wide variety of skill sets will be welcomed and supported in hands-on work with ISLE. Anyone who works with installation or maintenance of Islandora, people from small institutions with Islandora repositories, and folks considering migrating to Islandora are especially encouraged to attend. During the workshop, participants will find themselves engaging with other members of the community on a number of topics including future growth of ISLE to enhance features and deepen documentation. Participants need not have development skills to attend, but do need attention to detail and a willingness to follow instructions for working with the command line. A laptop is required. We will provide a positive learning environment.

While the workshop will focus on building a local development environment, ISLE also delivers a set of services and systems that are resilient, and ready to run a full Islandora stack to the highest production standards. For institutions considering migrating from a proprietary digital repository to a Fedora-based open source digital repository, ISLE offers an appealing jump-start alternative to manual installation of Islandora or other similar systems. For institutions already using Islandora, ISLE is expected to cut maintenance costs in half and improve overall security.

Learning Outcomes
Attendees will gain a basic understanding of Docker, Docker images, and the Islandora stack.
Attendees will build an ISLE environment using Docker images and will leave with a functional Islandora environment for testing.
Attendees will build relationships via a very hands-on, iterative, and engaged workshop format and will leave with a cohort of contacts.

This workshop is part of Learn@DLF (our brand new pre-conference workshop day). Learn more and register for this session: https://forum2018.diglib.org/learnatdlf/
