Ruhr University Bochum (Germany), working with Antleaf and Cottage Labs, is developing a Research Data Management System based on Samvera Hyrax 3, using remote S3-based object data storage.
This presentation will focus on the technical challenges involved in adapting Hyrax covering in particular:

1. The use of Hyrax to support university research staff in managing, preserving and publishing their data
2. The use of remote (S3) object storage instead of Fedora for storing all content
3. The use of external authentication (Shibboleth and ORCID) for all users
4. Creating new "work types" to cater for different types of relatively complex, nested research data models
5. The challenge of accommodating relatively complex, multi-stage review workflows involving several different users in different roles

We are interested in comparing our experiences with others in the Samvera community, and so will be very open to discussion on any of these - or related - topics.
