Information Archiving Solutions
Arkansas Data Services’ archiving product was originally offered as RAS/400. RAS/400 was designed as an affordable solution to allow any AS/400 report to be archived and optionally printed, after archiving, and is a product that has application in virtually all business environments. Our new release, “RASi” (Record Archive Service for i), is offered at RASi Level 1 and RASi Level 2. RASi can be installed on your in-house IBM i, or RASi functions can be provided by Arkansas Data Services online via the internet.
Level 1 is an enhanced and simplified solution to archiving reports, documents, and images. The reports and images are stored on your IBM i (AS/400, iSeries) disk, or on a Windows server. Content is indexed using Microsoft Search Server 2008 Express, and is retrieved easily and quickly using a web browser interface.
For IBM i users who are on i5/OS Version 6 Release 1, which supports the use of IBM OmniFind Text Search Server for DB2, RASi Level 2 provides the ability to search, or “crawl”, all archived material on content. This offers a level of sophistication that can be applied to an organization’s data that compares to those search engines most widely used on the Internet. RASi Level 2 offers the highest level of security and archive protection, and, since archives are not retained in a folder, content cannot be deleted. Content is viewed through the provided web browser interface. No Windows server is required.
