Here you will find requirements documentation describing the scope, planning, and various technical resources associated with the BitCurator project.
It is possible to run the BitCurator environment as either a traditional stand-alone operating system or as a virtual machine using virtualization software such as VirtualBox or VMWare. The instructions on this page will assist you in installing, configuring, and using the BitCurator environment (and individual tools) for both cases.
The BitCurator environment runs best on a host with a 64-bit processor and a native 64-bit OS. We recommend that you configure your virtualization software to provide the VM with at least 2 processor cores and 4GB of memory. For large disk images, data-intensive tasks, and simplified access to a range of hardware write-blockers, the environment should be installed on the host machine as a dedicated operating system.
