The Personal Electronic Archive ™ is the Single Object Datastore ™ for every person’s personal electronic data.
Everything that can and should be stored in a highly secure and controlled environment is designed to be stored in the Personal Electronic Archive ™ or PEA. Each PEA is a self-contained system or container for all the information in the datastore. It is the single repository for a person’s identity information, financial, education, healthcare, employment, intellectual property, communication, location, municipal, state and national information.
The PEA can be accessed in many ways and for many purposes. It has it’s own access control lists and requires authenticated access. It is self-describing and does not require external meta data.
The PEA is web services compliant. It supports all the current REST api’s for data access.
The PEA’s self-replicating architecture is designed for a N+2 deployment. At all times there are three copies of each PEA online in the event of a network or hardware failure. In addition, subsets of the PEA can and should be replicated to the local environment for more real-time access and updating. (For instance, if a patient is admitted to a hospital the medical sections of the PEA would be available in the local system for access). The exciting portion of this architecture, is that whether looking at the entire PEA or a subset the technical architecture never changes, only the information.
The PEA can be archived and never changes it’s security model. The data never leaves the Single Object Datastore.
The PEA is self-audited. All access is recorded in the PEA. The audit information can be reviewed by the appropriate security personnel or the owner of the PEA.
The PEA is an automated proxy in an on-line environment that is always on. It can act on behalf of the owner with the appropriate rules and controls.
