Selecting File Storage Scheme for Daminion Server - DAM for small teams

Before you start using Daminion Server, it’s vitally important that you select the right file storage scheme for your centralized media archive library. The 3 components of your centralized image archive are:  

  • Documents (photos, videos, vector and CAD drawings, audio, documents)
  • Daminion Server
  • Daminion Client

 

these 3 components don’t have to be located on the same computer, it’s important t to bear in mind that their location will affect:

  • Performance
  • Security
  • Features
  • Deployment time
  • Workflow
