Make migration simple for your end users with Lotus iNotes Access for Microsoft Outlook. You can maintain your Microsoft Outlook end-user experience while replacing the Microsoft Exchange server with Lotus Domino. Each user, with a Microsoft Outlook client, benefits from iNotes' simple plug-in technology that maps server requests to a Lotus Domino format. Simply stated, Microsoft Outlook assumes it is communicating to a Microsoft Exchange server. The iNotes plug-in intercepts the conversation between the client and server and translates to and from the Lotus Domino format. This IBM...

In 1978 IBM introduced the System/38 as part of its midrange platform hardware base. One of the many outstanding features of this system was the built-in Relational Database Management System (RDMS) support. The system included a utility for defining databases, screens, and reports. This utility used a form named Data Description Specifications (DDS) to define the database physical (PF) and logical (LF) files (base tables, views, and indexes). In 1988, IBM announced the AS/400. The OS/400 operating system also contained a built-in RDMS, however, IBM offered Structured Query Language (SQL)...

Blade servers are a relatively new technology. They have captured industry focus because of their modular design, which can reduce cost with a more efficient use of valuable floor space. They offer simplified management, which can help to speed such tasks as installing, reprovisioning, updating, and troubleshooting hundreds of blade servers. You can do all of this remotely using one graphical console with IBM Director systems management tools. In addition, blade servers provide improved performance by doubling current rack density. By integrating resources and sharing key components, costs...
