Abstract: This whitepaper presents a practical solution for file archiving using the IBM Spectrum Protect Backup and Archive client (B/A client) in conjunction with IBM Spectrum Protect for Data Retention (SSAM). In the first chapter general requirements for file archiving are discussed and a common architecture for file archiving is shown. The second chapter introduces a file archiving solution based on the B/A client and SSAM, demonstrates how it addresses the requirements for archiving and explains how to setup and configure it. The third chapter provides guidance for using this solution for archiving, searches, retrieval and retention management.
