DataMgr

DataMgr is a distributed file management package that manages your client and/or server disks to provide unattended magnetic disk resource management. It reduces the need for more expensive magnetic disk storage by transparently assigning data to the most cost-effective storage media. DataMgr also provides both transparent file migration and the ability to directly access optical disk jukeboxes and/or tape libraries through its layered integration with the AMASS® software.

Why use DataMgr?

DataMgr lowers your storage costs and reduces the need tor expensive magnetic disk.

  • Increases the capacity of your existing file systems through file migration
  • Provides automatic space availability when your magnetic disk file system begins to fill or when user-defined migration criteria are met
  • Reduces the costs of storage and storage management by migrating files to less expensive storage media

DataMgr provides additional capability for the AMASS virtual file system. As a layered product to AMASS, DataMgr introduces hierarchical storage management (HSM) into your full heterogeneous client/server or centralized configurations.

DataMgr’s HSM functions automatically and transparently migrate infrequently used data from local storage on your clients or file servers usually hard disk drives. AMASS then moves the data to less expensive media, such as magnetic tape, optical disk, or optical tape. This frees storage space on your faster, more expensive storage devices for better utilization of resources.

Your EMASS advantage: All of these functions are transparent to the user, making it seem as though each client workstation has a local hard drive with virtually unlimited storage capacity.

DataMgr provides user-selectable migration criteria with transparent access. Migration types include: Explicit-initiated by user requests, Periodic-initiated during non-peak times and Demand-initiated automatically when space is exhausted in the file system. Files can be migrated based on file age, file size, minimum age and size thresholds, and file location. In addition, files and directories can be locked against migration if desired.

  • Enables transparent file migration and access to users and applications
  • Provides direct access to tape and optical automated libraries through AMASS
  • Allows you to read file contents during file reloading
  • Enables compatibility with third party network backup products-backup and restore succeed even without reloading migrating files
  • Provides flexible migration policies for easy configuration to the needs of specific environments
  • Uses native UNIX file system without any modifications to preserve compatibility of the native file system
  • Enables easy installation, operation and maintenance Complies with the IEEE Mass Storage Reference Model

COLD Software

Overview

FileNet’s Computer Output to Laser Disk (COLD(TM)) software is an advanced application package that provides an efficient, economical solution for archiving computer-generated output such as customer statements, banking, and accounting reports, or any information traditionally converted to microfilm and microfiche, on the optical disk for permanent storage.

COLD software reads data from magnetic tape generated by a mainframe, or from a file received electronically from a mainframe or other host system. COLD software then processes the data, creating documents available for storage, retrieval, multi-user display, and manipulation with WorkFlo® software processing.

COLD software is a cost-effective, error-free document entry method because the exact information is transferred to optical disk without the need to print, scan, or re-key. And you have quick access to accurate information without having to deal with cumbersome hardcopy reports or manually retrieve microfilm or microfiche.

When integrated with FileNet’s WorkFlo Business System software and its powerful Image Management Services (IMS) software, COLD software provides inexpensive, on-line access to volumes of information, and lets you streamline your daily business operations and increase employee productivity.

COLD Instead of COM

Unlike the resource and time-consuming Computer Output to Microfiche (COM), COLD software is fast and easy. Computer output is downloaded directly using industry standard file transfer protocols such as RAE and FTP. Or, the data can be output to nine-track or IBM 3480 cartridges, then loaded into a FileNet system for COLD software processing.

Access to documents is immediate after processing. The documents are accessible by multiple users concurrently, right at their desktops. And to maximize system throughput during prime business hours, COLD software processing can run as a background task, after-hours, or on standalone systems.

COLD Software

COLD Software Features

Report documents can be merged with scanned background images that contain headings, titles, and other important information. These templates are stored only once, not with every associated page, saving optical disk and mainframe space while increasing system productivity.

Based on parameters defined by you, COLD software automatically indexes each document using up to 25 fields. While each report can be viewed as an individual document with its own indexing information, it is also possible for COLD software to combine reports into a single document for faster access. COLD software then generates a table of contents for the multiple report document and stores it as the first page of the document. To access the information, you need simply review the table of contents to find the page number of the individual report required.

With COLD software, report formatting is controlled by a number of operators entered parameters such as the number of characters per line, the number of lines per page, fixed or variable page documents, the location of index information, and the name of the document class. These are stored and recalled the next time the same report format is run, allowing for quick set-up of COLD software jobs and reducing the possibility of entering incorrect parameters.

Easy Integration with Document Imaging

WorkFlo scripts can be designed to retrieve COLD documents, search through the table of contents, and display, print, or fax the desired pages of a document. When COLD documents are used with image documents, your ability to more efficiently automate business processes is greatly enhanced.

With WorkFlo you can automate the retrievals of appropriate COLD and image documents to any workstation running FileNet display software or network enabled laser printer. Ad hoc queries and retrievals are also easy using FileNet’s Image Display for Windows software application. No programming is required, you just point and click to display, print, or fax.

COLD documents are stored as coded data and only need to be processed once; however, the same document can then be used simultaneously by many other applications throughout an enterprise. Just design WorkFlo scripts to extract portions of the COLD document and transfer them automatically to a form generated by File Net’s AutoForm software or to any Microsoft Windows Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)-compliant application running on your desktops, such as spreadsheets or word processing documents.

AMASS

AMASS transforms a device typically considered as “off-line storage” into truly on-line direct access mass storage. AMASS presents your automated optical or tape library as one device and one mount point, with a standard UNIX file system consisting of directories and files. A user or application can write files to or read files from the library the same way they would with the magnetic disk.

Advantages of using AMASS

  • Provides direct access to optical and tape storage libraries
  • Increases overall system performance because the data is written to the media in a contiguous stream
  • Delivers more efficient data management by allowing the many pieces of media to be divided into sets called volume groups
  • Enhances disaster recovery with automatic backup of the AMASS index to media in the library and a fully synchronized journal
  • Enables you to match the media to the application through its support of over 20 different vendors’ optical and tape libraries

AMASS is a file system implemented through the UNIX virtual file system layer. It’s completely transparent single filesystem interface and unlimited filesystem size can provide direct file access and storage on libraries of any size.Because AMASS presents the entire library under a single, exportable mount point, files are accessible via standard communication protocols such as NFS, TCP/IP, RFS, NetWare, AppleShare, LAN Manager and others.AMASS provides file, volume, drive, and automated library management and system administration tools needed to control, configure and monitor the system.

AMASS treats all media or volumes in the library as one large disk. An on-line AMASS index keeps track of where files are located on different volumes both in and out of the library. The capacity of the AMASS file system is virtually limitless. Maximum UNIX file size is supported and, when necessary, files and directories can span volumes.

  • Supports standard UNIX commands
  • Utilizes high-speed magnetic disk caching to reduce contention and increase performance
  • Utilizes on-line index to track file information allowing many common UNIX file operations to be completed without having to load a volume
  • Utilizes a motif-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) for system administration
  • Supports multiple heterogeneous libraries simultaneously (optical and tape)
  • Prioritizes reads over writes
  • Manages file, volume and drive operations automatically
