Domino 11 – S3 Storage

Domino 11 – What are you waiting for?

I know a number of organizations that are still running Notes/Domino 6, 7, 8 and 9. For some it is a resource issue – management will not approve the time and money that is needed. If this is you then let me help give you the reasons to upgrade. You can take these technology advancements and use them to convince your management the upgrade is worth it.

Over the next couple of months, I will be writing at least one article a week that discusses improvements with Domino mail and calendar that were introduced in 10 and 11. You can view my first articles here ; but today we are going to talk about S3 Storage

S3 Storage

A new feature in Domino 11 is the ability to move DAOS NLO files to secondary storage. By using a S3 compatible storage service DAOS objects that have not been accessed with in a specified time can be moved to tier 2 storage. Currently, AWS S3 and MinIO are supported. By moving attachment objects to a S3 service storage, costs decrease and backup performance increases.

Tier 2 storage is configured via the Domino server’s server document. Once it is being used on the Domino server there are Tell DAOS commands that can be used.

Additional management can be done by monitoring the new DAOS tier 2 statistics.

Note: S3 storage is not supported on AIX of AS/400.

Ultimately, HCL continues to keep their promise to reduce the total cost of ownership of Domino.

CollabSphere 2020 Live – On the Rise Together

CollabSphere 2020 beat all expectations. For three days I enjoyed collaborating with fellow members of the Notes/Domino/Sametime/Connections community. Final registration number for the conference was 482, a great sign that this software suite keeps on trucking.

For the next 30 days attendees may review all CollabSphere 2020 slides and recordings of the sessions at After that the recordings will be moved to YouTube. The slide decks for my three sessions may be accessed here. As always, I am available for any questions you may have.
