Vault Christmas Present


At least it is for me…  Smile

Suppose you have been running Vault Basic or Pro using MS SQL Server Express 2005 or 2008, depending on when you started using document management. One of the primary limitations of Express was the database having a size limitation of 4GB. With Express 2008 R2 and newer, that limitation is expanded to 10GB of data. Seriously? 10GB of metadata, data about the data? That is lots of data.

Now, if you’re using replication, you are forced into a full version of MS SQL Server. For those not using replication, here the two main reasons:

  • Manage a central file database across multiple offices, Site ‘A’ and ‘B’ listed below
  • Disaster recovery, where Site ‘B’ is simply an off-site server hosting your backup data.

Merry Christmas!

  • Open File from Vault
  • Open Sheet Set from Vault
