Full 64-Bit support
The 64-Bit version delivers optimal use of the main memory. This can increase data throughput in enterprise installations where multiple parallel data streams are backed up or archived simultaneously. Archiware P5 64-Bit makes maximum use of server hardware and delivers more bandwidth and increased scalability, while at the same time better exploiting the available hardware resources. Compatibility between 32-Bit and 64-Bit versions is assured.
FreeBSD as a new platform
Archiware P5 release 5.2 supports FreeBSD 9.x on Intel and AMD 64-Bit architectures. FreeBSD is the perfect platform for Archiware P5 in several respects. It is a modern Open Source Operating System for servers and embedded systems such as NAS storage systems. FreeBSD is easily installed, resource friendly and, with NAS4Free, delivers an embedded Open Source Storage Distribution. With ZFS, FreeBSD offers a powerful file system ideally suited for managing large amounts of data.
Archive Index Management
P5 Release 5.2 enables users to modify the structure of the Archive Index. Similar to a conventional file system, P5 now supports moving and renaming of index elements as well as creating folders. To ensure that the history of the structure is preserved and changes remain traceable, modifications are saved in snapshots.
Storable Searches in the Archive Index
Archiware P5 Release 5.2 lets users store search criteria in order to find data quickly and easily. This is especially helpful when P5 Archive is used as an integral part of the workflow and files from the Archive are required frequently.
Archive Job Protocol
Archiware P5 Release 5.2 compiles a list of files that were archived successfully. This list can serve as documentation and therefore as a protocol of the Archiving process. After Archiving, the protocol is sent automatically as an e-mail.
The use of P5 within a production workflow or as a cloud service requires secure communication with the central mailserver. To achieve this, P5 is equipped with the industry standard for mailserver authentication and SSL/TSL encryption.
