The SilverBack Workflow Engine controls all commands, including file open, file close and related commands. This step ensures that the system resources are available to suit the client's needs. All file activity is automatic and does not require administrative support.
When a new file is written and closed, the Workflow Engine locks the file and initiates one or more copy processes to distribute the file to all resources defined in the RSA. After each copy, the Workflow Engine database is updated to reflect the new distributed status of the file.
