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?
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.
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.

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:

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

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
