Multiple Document Stores benefits

Jump to solution

Hi Trim users 

 

Just hoping to get some information (links ect) on the benefits/downfalls on using multiple stores. In particular if you have a store and set it as read only then point all new records/renditions to a new store. 

 

Is that sort of configuation recommended if a store is grown large and you want to make backup procedures quicker/reliable?

Yep, everything would then go to store B, and Store A, could be saved to back up, nothing would be placed in this store from that point on.   In the captura days people would make it 700 mb in size to burn to a cd and then create a new store, make the old read only.. I dont really see it happening too much any more though.

Hey Jason,

 

Just my thoughts but usually I've found they are broken up for a reason, had Dutch customers have copies of there water works in one place that were 2 gb don't want them over the link back to head office had a separate store... Other use it as a way of splitting up sites .. Site A documents local site B documents local.. Only swap when they need it..

 

Other reasons, bring in a new portfolio for a department (lets say Arts 😉 ) if you create a separate document store for them then its easy when they have to move to the next department.

 

Another is a merging department or migration, start a new document store, you know what new and what old from before... Threes lots of reasons.. and I haven't even started on FTP 😉

 

Also some departments have a security need to have some type of document/record in a secure location, which cost more, more secure and you dont want everything there just the important stuff...

oh i just saw the read only part,... mostly ive found because whats there can be passed off to someone else.. so before migration after ..

Also from a SAN/Disk perspetive you dont want your drives getting too big so if it hit's 800 GB's you might want a new drive new location with nothing going to the old one..

yeah I think a number of places use the record type A goes to  store A for branch offices and things like that.

 

I am mainly tring to get my head around

 

record type A goes to store A

then change record type A to go to store B 

make store A read only 

 

what happens with renditions ect they would have to now be written to store B
