Enterprise content management (ECM)

ECMs are applications that typically store large volumes of information. Most ECM application is supported by a combined database for indexing and versioning information and large amount of documents (PDF, images and even videos). These applications can consume many terabytes of disk space on a SAN when only 10-15% of that space stores the databases, which require high-speed access, and the rest supports the documents themselves. Offloading the document part of the database in the cloud could save customers huge amount of space.
