Fully integrated in the Alfresco Digital Platform, Alfred is a blueprint content services architecture with prefabricated components to build, run and evolve high performance activities and archiving content services.

Wherever you deploy, on premise, hybrid or cloud native, Alfred guarantees performance, availability and full tracing of all incoming out outgoing traffic (internet, document streams) into the Alfresco Digital Platform.

 

How can organizations benefit from Alfred?

Reducing Operational
and Maintenance Cost

 

Many Alfresco administrators struggle with upgrading Alfresco systems, because they are tightly coupled with different integrations and third party systems.

Alfred “as-an-architecture” decouples your content services architecture by introducing a single point of access to Alfresco, isolating upgrades from applications evolution, supporting the principle of semantic versioning. We deliver backwards compatibility (Alfresco 4.X, 5.X, 6.X), integration with Alfresco’s API and controlled versioning.

Boosting Alfresco
Availability and Visibility

 

Through our platform Alfred, you will enjoy 99.9 % availability in cluster architectures. By decoupling Alfresco from its input and output streams, Alfred ensures that Alfresco is never out of resources.

Alfred provides extensive and pro-active monitoring, we detect patterns in usage to increase predictive maintenance and up-time.

Enforcing Information Governance

 

The right information at the right moment to the right people. We package best practices in document model and automation to enforce governance in Alfresco. Alfred includes a single point to manage policies, for internet versus intranet usage, protecting business data and privacy (audit trails, authentication, file encryption, metadata driven automatic permissions…).

Graphical User Interfaces & Business Applications

The user experience is paramount in the choice and adoption of Alfresco and any Content Service Platform. Companies have different needs and the integration with their own business applications is also fundamental.

Alfred includes two user interfaces for Alfresco, for desktop (Alfred Desktop) or web users (Alfred Finder) and the integration with other applications.

  • Drag and drop functionalities, versioning, full metadata support, preview, workflows, permission based access control
  • Advanced search capabilities (type-ahead suggestions, AND/OR filters..), leveraging Apache Solr technology
  • Outlook, Google Drive, Guidewire and many other integrations
  • Alfresco Community and Alfresco Enterprise support and compatibility

Open set of APIs (Intelligent Integration Layer)

We deliver backwards compatibility (Alfresco 4.X, 5.X, 6.X), integration with Alfresco’s API and controlled versioning. Alfred integrates an open set of API’S into your Alfresco that isolates business applications development from Alfresco platform upgrades. The integration layers provides:

  • Federated searches: retrieving information from Alfresco, Google Drive and Office 365
  • Quality of Services: for real time operations and high speed documents migrations
  • API governance: protecting business data and privacy (audit trails, authentication, file encryption, metadata driven automatic permissions…)

Alfred Monitoring

Alfred Ops is the monitoring system of Alfred, which delivers system and application monitoring for running and optimizing Alfresco enterprise installations. It applies a strategy of logging, metrics and tracing to support high availability, performance and security.

Additionally the monitoring system has a set of service routines to

  • Correct data and configuration errors
  • Gain additional insight into Alfresco operation

Alfred Storage

Beyond 10 million documents, file and block storage are impractical to scale. Alfred integrates Alfresco with Caringo Swarm, an S3 object storage, through a connector. The integration enables documents to simply be stored in, and retrieved from Swarm using the standard Alfresco interfaces.

With Alfred Object Storage connector, you can:

  • Secure your content with multi-data center DRP (Disaster Recovery Plan)
  • Define your versioning policy to avoid greedy and complex multi-tier back-up strategies
