This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 12472 “Is the Futureof Preservation Cloudy?”. Our seminar was composed of a series of panels structured as aseries of brief presentations followed by an open discussion. The seminar started with a sessionintroducing key concepts and deﬁnitions and illuminating the vast array of perspectives fromwhich attendees were addressing issues of cloud and preservation. We them proceeded into adiscussion of requirements from diﬀerent types of communities and a subsequent discussion on howto protect the data and ensure its integrity and reliability. We next considered issues related tocloud infrastructure, in particular related to management of the bits and logical obsolescence. Wealso considered the economics of preservation and the ability to reuse knowledge. In addition tothese pre-planned panels, we had three breakout sessions that were identiﬁed by the participants:automated appraisal, design for forgetting, and PaaS/SaaS for data preservation.
