Sample IT Department Request Letter

Dear IT Dept,

Our digital collections team will be testing a Docker implementation of the Islandora digital repository system called ISLE.

We require access to a server meeting the following Hardware Requirements:

  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or CentOS 7.x running on a server or virtual machine
  • Minimum 2 CPU's (w/1-4 cores each)
  • Sufficient hard drive or attached storage to hold your collection
  • 30-50GB for the server OS and overhead
  • 16-32 GB of RAM

Our team will either need root access, or a user called "islandora" that has sudo privileges.

We will need the above hardware so that the automated ISLE installation process can install the following Software Dependencies:

  • Git, Docker, Docker-Compose, openssl, git, htop, ntp, curl

Thank you,
