Agile data management with vjoon Storage Engine

On our vjoonity blog we now regularly present a module or feature with exciting background information. In June, everything revolves around vjoon Storage Engine server module and the ideal backup strategy.

With data volumes growing worldwide, agile and responsive data management is a critical success factor – be it in a company-owned network or in the cloud. vjoon Storage Engine supports IT teams in operating the agile data management required today.

In multichannel publishing and content marketing, the data load grows heavier with every added output channel. And rising demand for high-resolution images and videos further exacerbates an already challenging situation. To protect the integrity of all this information, companies need a management tool that can handle vast amounts of data and restore the database promptly in the event of a failure. This is what vjoon Storage Engine is here to do. It streamlines and simplifies the storage and management of vjoon K4’s publishing data and markedly speeds up recovery. Taking snapshots of these data is simply a matter of pressing a button or triggering a scheduled automated routine. Using vjoon Storage Engine will shrink the database and even vast numbers of snapshots require little storage space. Data are recovered quickly in the event of an emergency and the publishing workflow can be promptly resumed.

Companies that rely on vjoon K4 and vjoon Storage Engine can either keep their production environment and data in their own IT infrastructure, use only the highly scalable object storage in the cloud with Amazon S3, or completely move the operation of vjoon K4 and vjoon Storage Engine into the cloud. A key advantage of this cloud service is that Amazon is constantly adding new data centers, especially in hubs of commerce and industry, to meet the growing demand for cloud services, cut latency and boost performance. With vjoon Storage Engine and Amazon S3, customers can access the data center that best suits their needs whenever they wish. We respond to Amazon’s growing network of data centers to increase our customers’ performance in the cloud.

der Freitag” has been successfully using vjoon Storage Engine for a year. “The editors estimate that vjoon K4 editorial system is extremely stable and optimally integrates the various channels”, says Marco Rüscher, managing editor of “der Freitag”. “der Freitag” benefits from agile data management and high data security. Backups of current publication data structures including metadata are continuously being processed. This allows the recovery publications in the worst-case scenario and day-to-day business can be operated again within one hour. Read the full case study here.
