Database mechanism

The TNI database (a.k.a the Storage) is a folder created by the user on a hard drive. Each inventoried asset is represented in it as a separate file of a specific format. Auxiliary data is stored separately from the asset files and includes user information, logins and passwords for remote access, etc. All data is compressed and encrypted.

It’s possible to create several separate storages and switch between them at any time. Asset-related data can be copied to another storage by copying the corresponding file.

Additionally, you can quickly export all the collected information about any device in the storage to CSV or XML.
