Share Article

CSP GmbH & CO. KG is offering a free report for download: a database check for database managers and decision-makers who want to examine the complex topic of database archiving from different perspectives.

Does database archiving make sense for your company? Can multiple benefits be exploited through this straight away, such as enhanced performance, cost reductions and fulfilment of compliance requirements? CSP GmbH & Co. KG is now offering a free database check to answer these questions which can be downloaded at This allows an assessment to be made in just seven minutes on the challenges faced, related to existing applications or databases and using a comprehensible set of questions. The subsequent assessment immediately shows the individual potentials of database archiving in the relevant environment. Furthermore the assessment report names five important technical criteria which decision-makers should not fail to take into account when selecting an archiving solution.

Assessment of the database check which is designed to be manufacturer independent also provides valuable information for database managers and decision-makers in a general section. Along with the report this information contains an overview of the different types of archiving enabling these users to become familiar with the merits and disadvantages. For example, in addition to database archiving there is also the option of shutting systems down – for instance where they have become outdated or are no longer required following a merger. The data can still be accessed where needed with an application retirement of this kind.

“The database check is more than a simple assessment – it provides focused expert knowledge for every aspect of database archiving. As such we are now offering an important basis for making a decision for anyone who wants to examine this important topic from different perspectives. Following the database check you have a more precise idea of what potentials there are in the company”, says Kilian Götz, product manager for database archiving at CSP.
The assessment section also lists which questions need to be clarified internally before implementing database archiving. For example, these include considerations as to which data must be capable of being accessed daily and which statutory and professional regulations apply in relation to data retention periods. The requirements of the specialist departments which need to access archived data at a later point in time also play a major role when planning an archive. Database schema changes should also be taken into account in order to guarantee long-term legibility and reproducibility.

Last but not least readers gain valuable information on which features of archiving solutions fundamentally make a user's work easier. These include integrated encryption procedures, the mapping of semantic changes in the database structure and enhanced documentation functions among other features.
