The EMC Centera is supported for the storage of attachments and compliance messages. The native Centera API is used to store attachments in the Centera cluster. Archive Manager considers the Centera to be an "always-online blind storage system." Archive Manager presents an attachment, and then receives a “ticket”. To get the attachment back, Archive Manager presents the ticket and gets the attachment.
When utilizing a PEA file with a Centera Configuration, it is important that the PEA file is accessible by each component that requires access to it. The Archive Manager components that will access the Centera, and therefore require access to the PEA file, are:
As a result, the group ArchiveManagerServiceUsers should have permissions to access the PEA file location. The PEA file should also be present on all servers with the above Archive Manager components. (This is important if you have NLB WebServers, and/or a clustered Archive Manager installation).
The Caringo CAStor/Dell DX storage cluster is supported for the storage of attachments and compliance messages. The Caringo HTTP interface is used to store and retrieve items. Archive Manager considers the storage cluster to be an online blind storage system; we present an item, and receive a "ticket". To get the item back, we present the ticket and get the item. Note that performing a full text index reindex can overload the storage cluster with restore requests. Please consult Quest before doing this.
