Alfresco ECM

If you have regulatory or business needs that require saving email into Alfresco and you are using Outlook for Mac, you may need to perform significant customization to make it work. Additionally, if you will have users that will be members to a large numbers of sites over time, you need to thoroughly explore what functionality will be degraded or lost and how to mitigate the impact. Other than these two scenarios, I cannot think of any scenarios where Alfresco would not be well suited to an organization's needs.

Nasuni Cloud Storage

It is great for organizations that do not want to be limited to the size of their storage appliance. Since the hardware is used primarily as a cache, there is no cap of the amount of data. Anything beyond the cache size gets stored in the cloud, and Nasuni has advanced logic that ensures the most active data stays in cache, so performance is not impacted.

Pros

  • Alfresco is able to handle a very large number of documents without requiring huge server capacity.
  • Alfresco is able to connect to the cloud solution and to share documents with an external organisation without security issues.
  • Alfresco implements standards like CMIS, and provides very simple integration points.

  • The management console is extremely simple and easy to navigate, making common tasks easy to do.
  • Our storage appliance is configured to snapshot data several times an hour, making the risk of data loss very low.
  • Data restores are very intuitive, and take seconds to initiate regardless of whether it is one file or 300GB of data. We have successfully restored many Gigs of data in minutes.

Cons

  • This enterprise CMS does not provide backup capabilities and it is lacking several support resources including FAQs and live chat.
  • Alfresco Share platform is good but to create pages , using dashlets is a tedious task in Surf platform. Some automation similar to Liferay Studio is required.
  • Alfresco Backup/Restore strategies needs improvement.
  • Alfresco Customization/Extension process needs improvement.

  • I wish there was greater ability to manage the data on the filer. For instance, culling the data for duplicates and cleaning up old data. We currently use a third party tool, which is very slow to run against many Terabytes of data. If this was included in the product from the ground up, I expect it could be much more efficient.
  • This is not the least expensive product on the market. That being said, for what it does, we find it to be a very worth while investment.

Process was relatively smooth and overall, downtime minimal. MSI was very responsive to our needs and made the transition easier than it otherwise might have been.

Alternatives Considered

- Alfresco provides more capabilities by leveraging open source components. The core architecture itself is JCR compliant which gives easy options for future migrations.- The PDF rendition in Alfresco comes with LibreOffice at no additional cost. - Alfresco support integrations using common industry standards like CMIS, REST, CIFS, FTP, WebDAV, SharePoint Protocol etc.- Workflow development much easier in Alfresco.

The technical support and escalation path for Nasuni is much more reliable and efficient. No getting transferred to various teams. Often times, the person who answers your call is able to resolve your issue. If they cannot, they get the case assigned to the appropriate engineer right away. Time to close has always been very good.

  • Another company has used this platform to store Statement of work documents with integration of SFDC., The business is happy to see the integration is seamless.

  • Dramatically reduced time spent managing our storage platform. Quotas and reporting tools take all the guesswork out of data growth. Updates are easy to deploy. Time freed up can be used for more user-facing activities that we consider more valuable to the organization.
  • The overall stability of the platform has been very good. We have been running on the same hardware for the past four years without any performance issues.
