Last week we had a conf-call with Mike Farman (Alfresco Product Manager) and we got some news about the “quota per space” feature roadmap:
Reminder : quota per space is the ability to set the maximum size limit on a space (this already exist per user).
– Quota per space is still not implemented in v3.2,
– This is clearly identified by Alfresco team as a must have feature (requested by many customers).
– Alfresco is working on that topic, but they need time to design it properly to avoid impact on performance due to space size calculation.
– This feature is expected for v3.3 E (Q3 2010).
Note: for our company this feature would be really useful because we have currently no way to restrict the space used by business unit which are using our centralized DM platform. What we have implemented is a job which will recursively browse all the space and calculate the total size of each space. However, this is a very intensive and long running process (of course the bigger the space are and the longer the process will take). This job is under development/test, and we will soon deliver it in production. We currently have 600 GB of data, so we will soon have a feedback about wheter or not such process can be runned on a big volume of data…
