WORM Files and Compliance on Sun StorageTek 5000 NAS

The Sun StorageTek 5000 NAS Appliance has a license key enabled feature which switches on support for "Compliance Volumes". These volumes allow an application to create files that are immutable for a defined period of time (i.e. the files have a retention period and cannot be changed in any way until the retention period has expired.)

The software is called the Sun StorageTek Compliance Archiving Software. I had planned to write a blog entry about how to use it, but I just found this document that explains how it works very nicely.

We have certified these features with all of the leading Enterprise Content Management applications and, as I mentioned in a previous posting, there are a number of White Papers on this topic here.

Sun StorageTek 5000 NAS and Enterprise Content Management Software

A core activity in my group is the certification of the Sun StorageTek 5000 NAS Appliance with the relevant products from all of our key software partners in the Enterprise Content Management space:
  • Symantec
  • Open Text
  • Computer Associates
  • Mobius
  • IBM/FileNet

This includes certifying the products with the Sun StorageTek Compliance Archiving Software so that we can support their compliance features. We do work with other ECM ISVs as well, but the above are our primary focus. Some of the papers we have written about these ISVs and Sun StorageTek 5000 NAS Appliance are now on Sun's website. Check them out if you are interested in this topic, the papers are all here.

Enjoy.
