After a long wait, it’s now time: EASY Archive 7 is now available to you for release as a beta release candidate. We’ve put in a lot of work and implemented many of the requests we often heard. One thing is certain: a lot of things are easier and more scalable with Archive 7. Surprise yourself and get an overview.
Archiving software for common operating systems
In the beta version of EASY Archive 7, we’re providing optimized implementation for common operating systems. Our archiving software supports the following platforms: for Windows, UNIX and cloud platforms, we’re providing packages for installing EASY Archive. Specifically:
- Microsoft Windows
- Linux (Debian)
Conventions instead of configurations – even for archiving software
We’ve learned from experience, which is why we’re performing a radical paradigm shift with EASY Archive 7. This is reflected in the installation routine in particular. We’re making it easier than ever for administrators. Simply double click to install the package suitable for your operating system. We’ve done this on the assumption of a widespread standard environment together with specific parameters. If this isn’t the case for your system, or if you want to, you can adjust this via other options before installation. Another highlight: the installation package contains a temporary license – that means the first administrative tasks can be completed immediately. It can then be replaced by a license for productive use later.
EASY partners can get an initial overview by downloading the beta version via the extranet.
Scalable at the click of a button: EASY Archive and Docker
It is difficult to estimate in advance how the capacity of an archive will change. That’s why we developed EASY Archive 7 in such a way that it can “live” and be immediately operable in a Docker container. That means scaling problems belong to the past. You can deploy other Docker instances of EASY Archive 7 with just a few clicks. This topic is very interesting for customers and partners in the cloud environment in particular.
Command line interface for internal tools
Following our paradigm shift, we also thought about future EASY Archive 7 admins. That’s why the familiar tools of our archiving software are now also available for use via command lines. This will make the lives of admins immensely easier – even when operating EASY Archive in Docker environments.
What else has happened in the meantime…
While developing EASY Archive 7, the development team optimized and tidied up functions. It was possible to remove parts of the code. This version of EASY Archive 7 has also resulted in the resolution of 150 tickets.
Furthermore, the development team also optimized the RESTful and Content web services. Preparations were also made for an AI-based maintenance web service for use in upcoming versions. The same applies to new logging functions which were created with other EASY development teams and with a view toward the EASY ONE strategy.
