According to this short item, "The Dutch Digital Heritage Network (DDHN) and the Open Preservation Foundation (OPF) are working together to develop a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) with preservation tools... creating an easy-to-install virtual machine running some of the most popular open source preservation tools. Heritage organizations will be able to use the VRE to test preservation tools without having to install them." The initial toolset consists of Apache Tika (detects and extracts metadata and text), DROID (digital record object identification), JHOVE, and veraPDF (validation tools).
