Designed for ease of use, Lotus Foundations Server provides unique reliability, security, and simplicity for small businesses:

  • Unique ease of use with built-in server autonomics: The Lotus Foundations servers are autonomic, meaning these servers are self-managing and self-configuring, and not only does this add simplicity, but also protects against possible security breaches, and helps save time and costs in day to day manual maintenance.
  • Security: The combination of a highly secure Linux based operating system, the built-in autonomics, and an extremely small server foot-print make it one of the most reliable, secure and easy to us servers in the SMB space.
  • Advanced automatic data backup: Includes patented intelligent disk-based backup (idb) technology that uses built-in intelligence to manage stored data and provide highly reliable frequent backups.
  • Disaster recovery: Full system recovery in just a few minutes. The Lotus Foundations servers have a small foot print, about half the size of typical operating systems. Because of this small footprint, copies of the full system can be stored on a hard-disk, providing a high-level of redundancy, and allowing you to quickly and easily recover your full system in the event of a disaster.
  • Reliable IBM Lotus Domino collaboration software, including Lotus Symphony Office productivity tools. Work on spreadsheets, presentations and documents without purchasing any additional software.
  • Boost business productivity with integrated business apps (optional): These small business apps offer the ease of installation and can be accessed even without a network connection.

Integrated antivirus and antispam: Tightly integrated with the Lotus Foundations server these engines run on your server instead of your personal computer, thereby providing a higher level of protection. In addition, these engines are run by the server, automating the installation and configuration processes .

The IBM Lotus Foundations Server combined these benefits with an entry network server using industry-standard architectures.

This mini-tower platform offers Intel Core 2 Duo and Xeon quad-core processors. These new systems include integrated SATA, an SVGA video controller with 16 MB of video memory, and an integrated 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet controller.

The IBM Lotus Foundations Server systems include a flexible range of HDD options.

  • Open bay SATA models include:
    • SATA controller - Supporting four simple-swap or fixed SATA HDDs
