Flexible Database Management

vjoon K4 supports three database platforms: MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle. All object files that are managed by vjoon K4 – including images, ads and multimedia content – are stored in the database as Binary Large Objects ("BLOBs") with full versioning. When a user accesses an object file, the file is copied to the user's workstation and opened in the file's native application, such as InDesign, InCopy, Photoshop or Word®.

With K4 Server Admin users can manage several different databases simultaneously from a single K4 server, migrate data from database to database, and distribute publications, as the situation requires. This speeds up many processes, particularly backup and archiving. Publications may even be duplicated in a variety of ways, for instance, entirely with all contents or with only the structure remaining intact.

In addition to that you are free to use vjoon Storage Engine to store your assets within an on-premises or cloud environment.



vjoon K4 is compatible with MySQL Advanced and Standard (not Community!). This database can be used for small, middle-sized or large system environments. It is available as central data storage for vjoon K4 including backup function, and for replication targets. vjoon K4 software requirements will inform you about the technical details.
