WAVE Computersysteme GmbH implemented a modern archiving solution based on PoINT Storage Manager. The solution allows an automated background migration of data from an obsolete archive system to be replaced without any interruptions of business operations and provides a WORM file system with standard CIFS file system interface for the existing DMS. Furthermore a standard hard disk system is integrated as WORM archive storage by means of PoINT Storage Manager.
"We are very convinced of the PoINT solution. Installation and configuration were carried out within short time and the obsolete archive system was in operating-state within one day. The migration of the legacy data on the obsolete archive system was executed without any problems and we were fully operational during that time.”
