Combined with NetApp storage systems, iSCSI support offers customers the same affordability, scalability and simplicity as standard Ethernet networking to create a low-cost, high-performance storage area network for IBM Lotus Domino or IBM Lotus WorkPlace applications in Windows(r) and UNIX(r) environments.</p>
<p>NetApp SnapManager for Lotus Domino is a comprehensive data management solution that simplifies and automates configuration, backup and restore operations for Lotus Domino databases supporting e-mail; Web application services; and applications such as CRM, SFA and HR.

NetApp is one of the first vendor partners of IBM Lotus to support Domino 6.5.</p>
<p>"We are seeing more enterprises turning to iSCSI for the benefits of storage networking-including increased storage utilisation, consolidation, scalability and easier backup and recovery in a cost-effective solution that helps them manage and store growing amounts of electronic data," said Mark Santora, senior vice president of Marketing at Network Appliance. "iSCSI support in Lotus Domino environments will enable customers to manage their data with affordable SAN solutions, while meeting business requirements for performance and availability, resulting in a higher return on infrastructure investment."</p>
