Document management systems are "critical path" solutions:
if the document database gets corrupted or causes a fileserver to become unreliable, users cannot access their files. Unlike standard desktop applications where one user's problems do not affect anyone else, document management system problems can impact the performance of multiple people, entire departments and multiple sites.
AutoEDMS is a robust and proven document management solution. ACS has used the Pervasive SQL Database Engine since 1986 because of its reliability and fault tolerance (Figure 4).
All database updates are "pre-imaged" to prevent database corruption due to incomplete record updates.
