Rodent-Assimilated Image Server
RAISistance is futile!
RAIS is a IIIF image server capable of delivering images and tiles to client-side viewers such as Open Seadragon, Mirador, Universal Viewer, and more. RAIS can serve a variety of image formats, but it specializes in JP2s by leveraging the power and speed of the open-source openjpeg project.
RAIS is extremely efficient, having been built for real-world use. RAIS has powered the Historic Oregon Newspapers website since 2014, and can handle serving large collections of images with modest hardware. See RAIS on Oregon News for some details.
