New Redbook: Sametime 7.5.1 - Best Practices for Enterprise Scale Deployment


The Redbook team has just posted the final version of a new Lotus Sametime Redbook: Sametime 7.5.1 - Best Practices for Enterprise Scale Deployment.

This IBM Redbooks publication provides a best practice framework for an enterprise-scale deployment of Sametime 7.5. It covers a range of business collaboration requirements that might typically be found within many large enterprises with geographically dispersed user communities and diverse business requirements for real-time collaboration.

Specifically, we discuss how to plan, install and configure a Sametime 7.5 infrastructure that will scale to meet the needs of a large, globally distributed enterprise. We approach the installation and configuration of Sametime in deployment phases, beginning with implementing the community services (chat functionality) and setting up load balancing.


This redbook has been available in draft form for a while now (I can't remember for sure, but think I may have linked to it back then), and I have actually used it a number of times already when assisting customers (it contains, for example, the best explanation I've found yet of specifically what the Lotus Sametime Enterprise Meeting Server does and when it may be helpful for your organization.)

My thanks to the authors, editors, and everyone else involved for yet another great redbook!
