Content management systems need to manage both content and meta data. Documentum uses the host file system to store the content and a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) to manage metadata and its association with the content items.

Repositories are comprised of object type tables, type indexes, and content files. The type tables and type indexes are tables in an underlying relational database. The content files are typically stored in directories on disks in your installation. However, content files can also be stored in the database, in a retention storage system such as EMC Centera or on external storage devices.


A repository is a managed unit of content and metadata storage and includes areas on the file system and a database. The organizational details of files and metadata in a repository are hidden from the users and applications that need to interact
with the repository. The repository is managed and made available to the users and applications via standard interfaces by a Content Server process.
