The large and growing volume of data held in an increasing variety of relational databases presents a huge challenge to the archiving community.  In this practitioner and developer hackathon we will run requirements workshops and facilitate hands-on hack-sessions to address the issues of preserving databases. We will consider SIARD as a potential archiving standard and review its implementation at  the Danish National Archives as well as discussing other existing practical solutions, for example, MIXED and RODA etc.  During the event there will be demonstrations of existing tools as well as opportunities to discuss alternative solutions such as emulation.
