The server ranges in price from $11,000 to just over $22,000, can be ordered beginning August 3, 1999, and is scheduled to be generally available September 24, 1999.
Partitioning capabilities allow multiple Domino "servers" to run inside a single AS/400e, to designate and balance the processing power and server space needed to run e-mail, groupware and web applications. Single server Domino clustering features built into the system enhance application availability through automatic fail over. If one software cluster fails, another takes over the workload without disrupting service.
The AS/400e Dedicated Server for Domino uses partitioning and clustering to provide 24x7 online server backup and recovery support, eliminating the need to shut down Domino servers during routine maintenance and service.
