DocuWare 5.1 Supports PoINT Jukebox Manager
With DocuWare 5.1 and the PoINT Jukebox Manager 5.0, users get another option for tamper-proof, long-term archiving of critical data. This combination provides several advantages to document management - such as central storage of different document types from a wide variety of sources - together with the high access speed of a hard disk and the security of a jukebox.
Retention schedules, controlled accessibility, data security and falsification prevention - all are important aspects for a long-term archiving of documents. Optical media provides one way to store large amounts of data in an unalterable format, meaning they cannot be manipulated. Through the integration of PoINT Jukebox Manager 5.0 from PoINT Software & Systems GmbH, optical media can be directly addressed by the DMS within the DocuWare document management system. Automatic hard disk caching provides high performance since the documents are available for day-to-day access on a hard disk and then written onto a CD/DVD for the purpose of long-term storage.
34 Terabytes in One Jukebox
Jukebox storage locations can now be accessed with the latest version, DocuWare 5.1. For example, a user can determine which magazine Jukebox and media types with the DMS should be used. DocuWare uses "logical disks" for its storage management. When setting up a new logical disk in a certain location, the DMS automatically looks for a free media of the appropriate type within a selected magazine and then formats it. DocuWare 5.1 currently supports CD and DVD; in the second quarter of this year, support of Blu-ray Disks (BD) will be added. Up to 34 terabytes can be stored in one apparatus when the integrated solution is used with a Jukebox that was specially developed for BD, such as the DISC Series by DISC GmbH. The PoINT Jukebox Manager also uses a scalable hard disk cache for quick and easy access. Thanks to optional mirroring, PoINT solution can also generate media with identical content in Jukebox systems in different locations. Mirroring guarantees 100 percent protection.
More Efficient Processes
By providing high speed and maximum security, DocuWare 5.1 and PoINT Jukebox Manager 5.0 help companies run their organizations more efficiently. Wasted time and costs are both significantly reduced. The additional security feature of both systems is an open architecture and is based on well-known industry standards.
