IBM Content Manager CommonStore for Lotus® Domino improves the way e-businesses handle their growing e-mail volumes, with an efficient and highly scalable solution that is designed for e-mail archiving, yet is expandable into an enterprise content management system. Notes and/or business document attachments are stored and available selectively and securely within the worldwide network. Archiving strategies can be user-driven or centrally defined by the system administrator. Whichever archiving strategy is chosen, CommonStore for Lotus Domino will provide multiple benefits, including:
IBM Content Manager e-Mail Archive Solution V8.1 is a newly bundled total solution offering for Enterprise customers who require a complete e-mail archive solution at a discounted total server price. For enterprise customers, the IBM Content Manager e-Mail Archive Solution V8.1 provides both the e-mail archiving capabilities of Content Manager CommonStore, and back-end repositories to choose from, including both Content Manager and Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms.
Content Manager CommonStore Lotus Domino Entry Offering provides entry-level pricing.
Refer to the Description section for details on the three solutions.
Planned Availability Dates
IBM Content Manager CommonStore for Lotus Domino provides an automated archiving solution and retrieval for digital data providing long-term storage. Business attachments are stored and available selectively and securely in the worldwide network. Once archiving strategies have been implemented, CommonStore will provide benefits including reduced capacity requirements, improved server performance, and a shortened window required for server backup.
What's New in V8.1
Support for Content Manager Views
New support for Content Manager views allows a customer with multiple business units, multiple user groups, or ASP users accessing the CommonStore Lotus Domino archives to delineate which documents can be accessed by which user community. This can now be supported more easily by the CommonStore for Lotus Domino or Content Manager administrator. Support for views provides better security, by enabling multiple CommonStore instances to view their respective documents only. Implementing Content Manager views with CommonStore Lotus Domino also reduces server load and improves performance where security restrictions for document access by certain groups are required.
Leveraging Content Manager Views, when archiving Lotus Domino items to Content Manager users will see only those items they are authorized to see within the defined Content Manager views. Content Manager Views are configured through the standard Content Manager System Administration client, specifying appropriate characteristics for item types, users and group profiles. Previously, "views" could be simulated by creating many different indices and index class definitions within Content Manager to isolate all the unique business areas' documents from each other. This approach was time consuming to the system administer, and added a heavy load on the CommonStore Lotus Domino servers. This feature is intended to support multiple customers working on the same Archive with their own exclusive CommonStore for Lotus Domino instance.
Policy-driven archiving provides an administrative interface for defining the enterprise's e-mail archive policy. Predefined policy driven archiving automatically initiates searches the across enterprise users' mail files to identify those e-mails that match the predefined archival policies (rules). Archival requests (jobs) are queued for the CommonStore Lotus Domino server to process automatically at the proper intervals.
Support for New Backend Repositories
Content Manager CommonStore for Lotus Domino adds support for Content Manager for Multiplatforms V8.1, Content Manager OnDemand for OS/390® and z/OS V7.1, Content Manager for iSeries V5.1, Content Manager OnDemand for iSeries V5.1, and Tivoli Storage Manager V4.2 and V5.1
Overview of the Content Manager CommonStore for Lotus Domino Solution:
Efficient, Long-Term Storage
Lotus Domino grows more successful and Notes administrators find volumes soaring because of:
Some stem the growth by deleting mail past an arbitrary date, which limits the storage size per user, limits the size of attachments, or utilizes individual archives. These measures also limit the user's ability to quickly access critical documents that might be days, weeks, months, or even several years old. Users find it easy to retrieve archived attachments and documents fast and automatically on whatever media they are currently stored.
IBM has a powerful, easy-to-use archive solution for Lotus Domino that supports all major Domino IBM platforms. Now Lotus Domino and Notes users can quickly access a document days or even years later, thus easily managing their growing information needs.
Content Manager CommonStore for Lotus Domino will also run on the integrated xSeries Server (IXS), a Microsoft Windows Server. For further information about the integrated xSeries Server, refer to:
Your Unique Archive Solution
Content Manager CommonStore for Lotus Domino connects Lotus Domino, the world's leading messaging and groupware platform, with the industry-leading Content Manager, Content Manager OnDemand, or Tivoli Storage Manager.
Regardless of your archiving strategy with CommonStore, 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 only 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.
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.
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. Off-load to clean up your Lotus Domino database. When the documents are needed again for processing, just retrieve them.
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 off-loads 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.
