Estuate has developed an IBM Optim Archive extension called Archive Connect. Archive Connect is a one-stop Optim Archive Repository application that helps business users and application owner’s view, query and manage data archived from different databases and applications across the enterprise.
Archive Connect is a Web-based intranet application that can be accessed from anywhere and by any client. Archive Connect is hosted on a Web server and uses a MySQL database to store its application information. Integrated with the IBM® InfoSphere® Optim™ Data Growth Solution, Archive Connect can access data from any enterprise application as well as access data from multiple applications at the same time. Data archived from the Optim Data Growth Solution is stored in proprietary, binary and immutable flat files that can also be viewed from Archive Connect.
