Archiving tools get de-duplication, indexing and search upgrades

Archiving firm Atempo is readying the next version of its file archiving software, which it promises will simplify the process of long-term data retention.

Atempo Digital Archive (ADA) 2.0 includes new features such as file de-duplication, full content indexing and enhanced search capabilities.

De-duplication technology ensures that multiple copies of the same file are not archived, thereby reducing the storage requirements.

The indexing and search capabilities improve users' ability to find files when needed. The search function is increasingly important part of e-discovery – for firms involved in litigation, the ability to locate all relevant documents is crucial.

"ADA is specifically designed to meet the real-world retention needs of data-intensive organizations," said Karim Toubba, vice president of
marketing at Atempo in a statement.

ADA 2.0 will ship on 15 April, and can be used for Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix environments.

Archiving – Summary

Archive means a collection of historical records especially for Publication, Banking, Insurance, Legal, Education and Government Organization.

So many of the Large Publishers started creating their own archives based on the provision of their product in electronic form.

The speed with which electronic Publishing has grown worldwide Publishers and Librarians have become increasingly concerned about the archiving and preservation of digital information.

It gives access rights for the subscribers to down load any history information because of the availability of physical copies in the archived.

It provides a back – up and may be used to spread across multiple geographic locations. The Archive is not even used for online searching service but it is archived to ensure that its content is not altered.

Costs/Resources –
It was the most difficult aspect as in most of the respondents indicated that they just didn’t know how much the archive was costing or would cost in the future.
For Publishers and producers the cost of archiving is still tied up there is no indication of hardware/software costs now or in the future.
