Been using CCIS as Temp cache for several implimentations with no archive configured.
Some of the installations are now holding 20k+ studies.
Question: What exactly is the advantage of archiving studies over just compressing them and keeping on filesystems as they are?
I am considering configuring archives for some installations and a part from the fact that it is easier to manage a 2000-instance CT study as one file rather than many, I would like to know more before.
For instance, wont it take longer to access images either by Q/R or streaming when archived? If the study will remain in the database, then there is no benefit as regards to database perfomance - probably more data in database. . . .
