NETWORK Appliance has announced expanded support for IBM Lotus applications, in particular IBM's new enterprise e-mail solution, IBM Lotus Workplace Messaging.
Lotus Workplace Messaging coupled with NetApp SnapManager for Lotus Domino software and other Network Appliance storage solutions, offers customers comprehensive data management for day-to-day operations in enterprise IBM Lotus environments.
In related news, NotesBench Consortium's recent test results validate that NetApp enterprise storage solutions provide a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for IBM Lotus Domino 6 environments.
As an IBM business partner, Network Appliance works closely with IBM Lotus to improve the performance and reliability of Lotus software environments on Network Appliance enterprise storage solutions.
IBM's new e-mail solution - Lotus Workplace Messaging - is built for organisations to easily extend enterprise e-mail to users who are currently without a dedicated workspace or e-mail access.
This offering is the first e-mail solution built to run on IBM WebSphere and IBM DB2 Universal Database technologies, and provides high levels of e-mail access and interoperability across heterogeneous computing environments using DB2 technology.
Network Appliance storage solutions paired with DB2 technology provide a data infrastructure for corporate information management, storage and access functionality, and streamlined administration.
