  • Shared data access in a network. (No danger of data loss through write collisions on a shared network drive)
  • Data security mechanisms

  • Data security

Where do I need to install Web Research Network Add-on?

Web Research Network Add-on is no system service but an administration console (Web Research Server Manager), which you use to administer server collections on remote MS SQL Servers.

This means that you do not need to install the Web Research Network Add-on software on the same machine where SQL Server is running. You can install it on any network workstation, preferable equipped with Windows 2000 or XP.

How can I copy data from local archives to server archives?

You can open local archives (*.csa) und Server Archives at the same time in Web Research und copy documents / folders using drag & drop operations between the two archives.

To copy all data from a local to a server collections, we recommend the tool WRCopy.exe, that is installed with the add-on. It runs in a separate process, and you can continue to work with ContentSaver in the meantime. Another advantage is that this tool does not create duplicates in the case that you have to interrupt the copy process.

How about the speed?

Speed basically depends on the speed of the workstation where MS SQL Server is installed, network bandwidth, and the level of shared use.

Generally, you will notice that documents from server archives are displayed faster. Searching is faster as well. Copying or moving data between a server archive is significantly slower because there are many queries across the network to avoid duplicates.

Additionally, Web Research can use full-text index features of MS SQL Server, which leads to very fast search results.

How big can server archives become?

The free SQL Server 2005 Express Edition can save up to 4GB per database. For greater data volumes, you need the licensed Microsoft SQL Server.
