Wisdom EDRM and context aware storage

The wisdom development team have just gone code complete with the a new feature that allows context aware document storage.

This means you can have your social care records stored on your SAN located in your secure onsite server room and have your non social care records stored in the cloud.
When the record is stored in Wisdom, Wisdom can decide what storage provider to use. This can in turn use a SQL RBS provider.
Having RBS as an option gives you more storage options.
Any RBS provider created for SharePoint will also work for wisdom.

The diagram below illustrates this.


A document store selector can use the following metadata to decide on what storage to use; Ref Path, Document Metadata, Document Type, Container Metadata and Container Type.

With more complex configuration you could move less used documents / records to low cost cloud storage that charges when you access the document.
