PBS Content Management for SAP Systems
PBS ContentLink is a lower cost, highly efficient content management option gaining traction among SAP users. PBS ContentLink is a powerful lightweight, alternative to traditional content management systems and enables archiving to meet legal requirements and support an ILM strategy. Unlike traditional content management systems, PBS ContentLink uses SAP as the application layer and hard disk storage systems for long-term data retention to deliver fast, reliable access to stored data, documents and DART extracts. The result is a content management system that can be implemented faster and administered simply while delivering higher performance at lower costs.
PBS ContentLink is implemented as a “stateless” translation software between the SAP solution and long-term storage devices for archived data; this means that no information on stored data and documents has to be maintained on the ContentLink content management server. Instead, the PBS ContentLink server maintains only configuration data and optionally cached data of stored documents for performance improvement. Persistent information resides on the storage hardware layer and within the SAP solution. With stateless implementation, PBS ContentLink takes advantage of existing backup and replication functionality for SAP and storage hardware and requires no additional configuration.
