Sizing the Microsoft SQL database and Archive Manager attachment store

Archive Manager’s storage recommendations must be considered when planning storage, whether the data is to be stored on the same hardware as the software or stored on a separate high-speed disk. Specifically, there needs be either capacity for growth of archive data when Archive Manager is installed or the ability to increase capacity as the archive grows, or both.

IMPORTANT: For best performance, it is recommended that the full-text index files not reside on the same physical disk as other Archive Manager data repositories—neither the SQL database nor an attachment store.

The Archive Manager database must always be stored on high performance disks, such as a local SCSI RAID 5 disk (with as many physical spindles as possible), or a fast high-speed attached disk.

The Archive Manager attachment store may be stored on a slower disk to reduce cost, as archived attachment retrieval is not as speed-sensitive as a database.
