Active Archiving Now Provides Large Object Support

Princeton Softech, a subsidiary of Computer Horizons Corp. (Nasdaq: CHRZ), today announced that Archive for Servers (TM) provides complete support for rich media and large data objects (LOBS). This breakthrough represents the latest milestone in the company’s ongoing initiative to deliver leading-edge Active Archive Solutions (TM). Now, companies can archive images, video clips, audio files and large documents, storing rich media in its business context and still providing easy access.

“The emergence of rich media BLOBs (Binary Large Objects) such as video and graphics files as standard business collateral is starting to affect corporate databases,” said Rich Evans, vice president of enterprise data center strategies for META Group, a leading IT industry analysis firm. “As IT incorporates rich data at an accelerating rate, this situation has the potential to hamper database performance already suffering under increasingly large amounts of simple data types. Active archiving solutions can greatly reduce the amount of data including large objects and greatly enhance database performance and availability while maintaining easy access to rich media.”

Archiving rich media delivers significant benefits to industries that must store LOBs to comply with corporate policy or government regulations. Archive for Servers provides easy access to archived LOBs, which can be researched, browsed and restored to production databases if needed for business or legal reasons, even if the data model has changed in the meantime.

“As the market leader in active archiving, Princeton Softech’s vision is to enhance and broaden its technology across as many markets as possible,” said Dave Norris, vice president Northern Europe at Princeton Softech. “Support for rich media follows the natural evolution of our Active Archive Solutions, further addressing important data storage issues that our customers in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, financial services, and other industries deal with everyday.”

Active archiving optimises disk utilisation, improves database performance and increases availability uptime by removing infrequently used data from production databases and storing it on a more cost-effective medium. With the potential to save millions of dollars in deferred capacity upgrades and maintenance fees, active archiving can deliver a rapid return on investment and provide a long-term solution to the problem of skyrocketing database growth.
