RSD and Alfresco Announce Strategic Partnership

Alfresco Software and RSD, the leading provider of enterprise information governance solutions, announce that RSD has become an Alfresco Software Gold Partner

December 8, 2009 (Geneva and London). Alfresco Software and RSD, the leading provider of enterprise information governance solutions, today announced that RSD has become an Alfresco Software Gold Partner.

As a result of the partnership, RSD will integrate its proven archiving technology and its report and output management solutions with Alfresco ECM software. The product, RSD ArchLive for Alfresco, will help Alfresco customers retire Alfresco content to an enterprise-grade archive as required, and assist in the delivery of large data center application output seamlessly to Alfresco users.

“We’re very excited to have RSD join our team as a Gold partner. They bring a proven archiving solution to Alfresco – which is particularly important for customers with terabytes or petabytes of historic documents,” said John Powell, CEO of Alfresco Software. “RSD also has decades of experience managing large business application data streams, which are often out of reach of Alfresco users. RSD ArchLive for Alfresco offers an elegant solution to both of these challenges.”

“We are very pleased to announce our new partnership with Alfresco,” said Pierre Van Beneden, RSD CEO. “Alfresco’s open source content management solutions have created an exciting disruption in the ECM market, and their growth has been impressive. RSD has been delivering robust information governance solutions for over 30 years – and we believe that Alfresco is a strategic enterprise repository that can benefit from our technology. With ArchLive for Alfresco, we can bring robust, reliable, and compliant archiving infrastructure to support Alfresco users at later stages in the document lifecycle. We can also extend the Alfresco collaboration space to include important business information once locked up in the data center. And unlike costly and complex enterprise archiving products, ArchLive is a small footprint solution which can be deployed quickly and easily, and at reasonable cost.”
