The Working Area "Storage" compromises facilities that supply (physical) data retention/preservation.

Infrastructure facilities in this Working Area share a couple of characteristics:

  • their functionality relates not only to storing of data for a longer or shorter period of time, but also retrieval of it;
  • their functionality is never offered to end users directly.

Storage (ST) Building Blocks and Environments

The following Building Block Types (infrastructure facilities) belong to this Working Area:

BT.ArchivingArchivingJ.A.H. Schoonderbeek
BT.BackupBackupJ.A.H. Schoonderbeek
BT.Raw RetentionRaw RetentionJ.A.H. Schoonderbeek
BT.RestoreRestoreJ.A.H. Schoonderbeek
BT.Retention EngineRetention EngineJ.A.H. Schoonderbeek

NB: It is very well possible to move Building Block Types (and their corresponding Variants) to another Working Area, when the architectural authority/responsibility shifts. However Building Blocks should be assigned to only one Working Area at a time!

The following Environments are defined as contexts of facility usage within this Working Area.
Depending on the differences in requirements (quality and type of facilities) demanded per Environment, several Building Block Variants may be defined, check out the specific Environment description pages in the table below to learn more. No Environments found (yet)
