    Last year, I created a rudimentary data hosting service (the “Document Library” in the menu) where isolated datasets (like excel tables, not the large online databases like EarlyLDS and Nauvoo) can be shared with the community. However, this is a short-term solution. Ideally, what we want is to be able to view, analyze, and link to individual records online, so that these datasets can play with the “big boys.”

    Tod Robbins has suggested CKAN, which looks very promising. It is open source, runs some major government data warehouses, has a Linked Data interface, and can do record-level access through its DataStore extension. However, it only runs on Linux (Ubuntu preferred) and this site is on a Windows server.

    Anyone have a Linux server you can put this on for us to play with? Any other ideas of data management server software?

    DKAN is another open source Open Data server that looks like it is CKAN-on-Drupal. This site isn’t running on Drupal, but they have a standalone installation I may try.
