Description

Efficient, Long-Term Storage

IBM has a powerful, easy-to-use archive solution for Lotus Domino that supports all major Domino IBM e(logo)server platforms. Now Lotus Domino and Notes users can quickly access a document days or even years old, easily managing their growing information needs.

Your Unique Archive Solution

Content Manager CommonStore for Lotus Domino connects the world's leading messaging and groupware platform, Lotus Domino, with the industry-leading Content Manager, Content Manager OnDemand, or Tivoli Storage Manager.

Whatever your archiving strategy with CommonStore may be, you benefit from smaller Notes databases and much faster Domino applications.

  • Offload documents and e-mail from your existing Notes databases on an external archive.
  • Keep the Lotus Notes documents online and archive just the cumbersome file attachments.

Lotus Notes Desktop Convenience

Forget laborious searches in paper files or microfilm archives. All archived documents are still at your fingertips. When you need an archived document or file attachment, retrieve it electronically using your Lotus Notes client. You can retrieve virtually any kind of document; for example, scanned images, word processor files, spreadsheets, and even SAP R/3 business documents, conveniently through your Lotus Notes desktop interface.

Productivity and Other Benefits

Content Manager CommonStore for Lotus Domino empowers you to improve the way you handle information. Business documents are stored and available through Lotus Notes selectively and securely everywhere in the network, even worldwide.

  • Higher productivity — Lotus Notes documents, archived and retrieved within seconds, are immediately available even after several years. Your operations are more efficient. Your cycle times are shorter. Your business is more competitive. With all of this working for you, you can give your customers better service.
  • Faster performance — Trimming the size of your Notes databases improves the performance of your Domino applications.
  • Secure documents — Documents are stored securely and safely in an external archive, protected against unauthorized access.
  • Storage capacity — Optical disk jukeboxes and tape libraries can store billions of documents on a single storage device.
  • Operational costs — Reduces the cost of server maintenance, archive administration, and storage on your Lotus Domino systems.
  • Little or no training — Seamless integration with your existing Lotus Domino applications means your Notes users can use the archive system right away.

Seamlessly integrated in Lotus Domino, CommonStore archives several kinds of Domino object hierarchies, from single Notes documents and views to entire folders.

Sophisticated Document Management

Content Manager CommonStore is a sophisticated Lotus Domino solution for mail archiving. You might need all e-mail available online. But do you need to keep all attachments available? Attachments consume a major amount of storage in mail applications. You can choose to archive complete mail documents or offload only file attachments. With a click, you can retrieve the associated file attachments immediately.

You can use Content Manager to scan large volumes of paper documents and process them in Lotus Domino.

Domino's unique replication function helps you distribute documents throughout your enterprise. At the end of their life-cycle, simply archive the documents to Content Manager, Content Manager OnDemand, or Tivoli Storage Manager. You have the information you need, when you need it.

Document Integrity

Content Manager CommonStore can store Lotus Notes documents in Domino native format. You can transfer a Notes document to the archive and restore it to your operative Notes database again as a Notes document. The document is completely restored in its original form. This offers new perspectives for the use of CommonStore: Consider the "archive" as a container for temporary safekeeping of Notes documents. Offload to clean up your Lotus Domino database. When the documents are needed again for processing, just retrieve them.

Forget About the Size of Your Notes Mail® File

With CommonStore, all archiving functions can be either interactively controlled by the users, or automated by Domino agents. You can set up the Lotus Notes client to archive your old e-mail documents automatically. For example, you can specify "Archive all attachments of mail documents older than three months." CommonStore then processes your mail documents and automatically offloads the appropriate file attachments. When you need them again later, just click retrieve. CommonStore immediately retrieves the files from the archive and reattaches them to the mail document.

Year 2000

This product is Year 2000 ready. When used in accordance with its associated documentation, it is capable of correctly processing, providing, and/or receiving date data within and between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, provided that all products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) used with the product properly exchange accurate date data with it.

The service end date for this Year 2000 ready product is January 15, 2003.

Euro Currency

This program is EuroReady.

For more information on the implications of the euro, visit the IBM euro Web site at:

EuroReady Products

IBM considers an IBM product to be EuroReady if the product, when used in accordance with its associated documentation, is capable of correctly processing monetary data in the euro denomination and of respecting the euro currency formatting conventions (including the euro sign). This assumes that all other products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) that are used with this product are also EuroReady. IBM hardware products that are EuroReady may or may not have an engraved euro sign key on their keyboards.

Currently, EuroReady status applies primarily to IBM products specific to the EMU countries. Products that are not specific to these countries are deemed to be "not ready" for euro unless otherwise stated in the product's country-specific specifications.

IBM Hardware Ready

IBM supplies certain IBM products which include third party software (pre-loaded or not) and/or third party attached hardware. In these instances IBM is not in a position to assert that these third party products are, in themselves, EuroReady.

Therefore, such IBM products will be designated as Hardware ready.

EuroReady Solutions

IBM considers a solution to be EuroReady when the solution providers have:

  • Analyzed the euro requirements, including the need to comply with relevant EC rules
  • Built in appropriate function

and can clearly demonstrate this by:

  • Detailing euro related requirements
  • Describing how these will be implemented in the solution
  • Declaring when the implementation will be generally available
The euro capabilities of a EuroReady solution will be clearly identified as features of the Solution specification as described in the contracts document.
