Compliant Storage

With PBS ContentLink you can create a direct and lean connection between SAP systems and all common storage systems such as e.g.EMC Centera and Celerra, IBM DR550, NetApp FAS series, or Hitachi, and in this way enable archiving that meets legal requirements and a future-proof Information Lifecycle Management concept.

PBS ContentLink now also simultaneously supports the new SAP-specific WebDAV 3.0 protocol in addition to the already well-established SAP ArchiveLink interface. PBS ContentLink has been certified by SAP for the integration scenario BC-ILM 3.0 (Information Lifecycle Management for SAP). The WebDAV protocol ensures the usage under the SAP ILM components Retention Manager and Retention Warehouse.

Retention Periods

SAP archive data is stored directly in the storage system with a legal retention period. The storage system itself ensures that the data cannot be deleted within the statutory retention period.

Many SAP customers consider PBS ContentLink - which does not have its own database - to be an inexpensive alternative to an Enterprise Content Management System. In addition to this, there are further advantages such as high scalability, high availability, as well as low administration. Separate administration outside of the SAP system is not necessary.

The integration of the SAP WebDAV 3.0 protocol results in many new implementation scenarios for PBS ContentLink, which we would be happy to discuss with you personally.

Now also as Cloud Solution

A cloud solution provides numerous advantages: It is highly scalable and adapts itself to increasing or unforeseeable requirements. You only pay for the IT resources that you actually use and swap investment costs for operating costs. Furthermore, you make savings in the areas of operation and maintenance. The solution is suitable for straightforward long-term archiving. The archived data remains stored as long as necessary without additional effort for a potential migration of the storage systems.
