Archiving is a data management issue on an extreme scale of time and volume. Archiving as an IT service must deal in decades as opposed to days and terabytes as opposed to gigabytes. The scale over long periods of time is significantly beyond what a database management system can comfortably handle. Data Archiving for Adabas enables you to provide a highly professional, modern and comprehensive archiving service to your organization as an integrated extension to your Adabas service.
