diff. between content server and archive server(SARA on content server)

I am very interested about difference between content server and archive server. Is there content server supplied by SAP and archive server by third party producers or something else?

If so dditionally what needs to be done to archive data (via Sara) on content server. I did it on sap R/3 4.0 on an archive server. Is it huge difference to do it on 4.7x2 on content server?

    Hey,

    The content server is used to save documents,

    and SARA (and other third party producers) are used to archive old data.

    For example:

    You should use Content server - When you need to save un-structured data about worker (e.g: pictures, documents and etc) .

    You should use SARA (and other third parties) - When you need to move to archive old

    worker which have left your organization before 5 or more years (there for they are not relevant for you)

    Here is some more information about Content server

    from help.sap.com:

    "Therefore, besides the SAP database, an external content server is always available in every SAP system installation. In this way, the necessary technical infrastructure is provided for all document-centric applications and business scenarios that do not require a long-term archiving solution"

    Here is some more information about SARA and archiving

    from help.sap.com:

    "Data Archiving removes from the database application data from closed business transactions that are no longer relevant for the operational business. The archived data is stored in archive files that can be accessed by the system in read-only mode."
