"As a small liberal arts college starting a new Digital Humanities Initiative with limited resources and programming staff, DuraCloud has allowed us to explore cutting edge media collection storage and services with the full support of the DuraCloud team. Our experiences have been very positive and we look forward to continuing our work with DuraCloud and the development of DuraCloud as a robust platform for preservation and collaborative digital scholarship." ~Janet Thomas Simons, Hamilton College

"The benefit of DuraCloud is storing files on the Internet outside of our institution and on a large scale storage provider. Off-site storage is the key to keeping digital content available for years." ~Chip Dye, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)

"The potential for DuraCloud is very high. By hiding the complexity and idiosyncrasies of multiple storage providers behind a single interface and a suite of tools, it delivers the benefits of a diverse network of storage locations, but without the overhead of managing different vendors. It brings together the best of both worlds." ~Bryan Beecher, Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR)

"Developing software for an open source project is often an exercise in frustration - with little documentation, frequently changing code, and limited access to the technical resources you need. With DuraCloud, it was the opposite: timely and accurate communication throughout, stable code, and prompt access to developers or other technical assistance." ~Richard Rodgers, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

"DuraCloud has grown into a workable tool that permits technical and non-technical staff to accomplish complex workflows using only a web browser and off-site compute time and storage. It bridges the gap between normal users and cloud-based services very well. Nothing else provides the exact combination of services that DuraCloud can provide." ~Stacy Pennington, Rhodes College
