Compliant archiving by PoINT

PoINT Software & Systems GmbH offers efficient solutions for long-term archiving.


Siegen, Germany, 5th November 2013 – Growing data volume and stricter obligations regarding data storage require intelligent and compliant long-term archiving. PoINT Software & Systems GmbH offers by its products PoINT Jukebox Manager and PoINT Storage Manager efficient solutions for companies. By both products long-term archiving can be implemented efficiently into already established workflows and integrated seamlessly into an existing storage infrastructure. Access to archived data remains transparent.

Compliance and risk management demand storage and protection of company information against unintended deletion up to methods for data security against deliberate modifications with criminal intentions. Companies, depending on the branch, have to comply with specific regulations – thus they have to follow compliant archiving principles. However they do not only comply with the corresponding laws and regulations but they also benefit from functional advantages and reduce the overall business risk. Potential dangers like data loss or manipulation are avoided and the information stays available for long-term. Furthermore companies can include also internal requirements into their long-term archiving concept.

For an efficient implementation PoINT Software & Systems GmbH offers, depending on the requirements and the data volume to be archived, a manual and an automated solution: PoINT Jukebox Manager supports optical storage and makes a TrueWORM-solution available by which data can be stored unchangeable manually on a file system. By PoINT Storage Manager archiving is carried out in an automated manner, depending on policies which have to be configured individually taking advantage of all suitable storage systems like disk, tape, optical, object storage and cloud. By these policies the administrator can define that only specific data is archived. The File Tiering solution has additional functions like data protection and data security, which ensure that the archived data is protected against modification and manipulation. Furthermore PoINT Storage Manager offloads the primary storage by using File Tiering and thus cost-intensive storage extensions can be avoided.
