HP Delivers Storage, Servers and Printing Solutions to Lotus Domino User Community

Offerings Increase Application Availability and Reduce Costs
ORLANDO, Fla., Lotusphere 2003, Jan. 28, 2003

HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced solutions that save Lotus Domino customers time and money by supplying advanced storage, servers, imaging and printing capabilities in support of enterprise mail solutions while allowing for virtually instantaneous data restoration.

HP StorageWorks Rapid Restore for Lotus Domino enables customers to recover from downtime in seconds or minutes, dramatically improving application uptime while preventing the loss of information. In addition to showcasing this solution at Lotusphere, HP is demonstrating Lotus application solutions using two key technologies: HP's recently announced two- and four-processor blade servers, the HP ProLiant BL20p and BL40p, and the HP Mobile Enterprise Printing solution, which provides complete support for the mobile workplace.

"HP's latest Domino offerings underscore our commitment to industry-standard servers running Domino," said Ron Eller, vice president, Solutions, HP Industry Standard Servers. "HP's blade servers are capable of supporting very large Domino installations and provide a seamless path for customers looking for a powerful, cost-effective consolidation strategy. Mail and messaging systems require proven, integrated data protection solutions like Rapid Restore for Lotus Domino. When combined with HP printing solutions, these offerings make HP the clear choice for extending and supporting Domino environments."

With its powerful, industry-standard blade servers, HP is building on its adaptive infrastructure strategy linking servers, storage and network capacity that can be dynamically allocated, accessed and shared by users and applications. The new HP ProLiant BL40p blade server is optimally designed for large Domino enterprise messaging environments that require maximum computing power and high-availability features.

In a recent survey of Domino users, roughly half of the enterprise customers were actively considering consolidating their Domino installations. In these environments, HP's high-density blade servers and adaptive infrastructure capabilities have become more valuable.

HP StorageWorks Rapid Restore for Lotus Domino provides rapid recovery for environments of up to 10,000 users. HP internal testing has shown recovery time in as little as 11 seconds to 15 minutes with the solution, versus up to six hours without Rapid Restore. The solution brings businesses back to operational mode without using critical application server resources. With HP OpenView Storage Management Appliance software v2, users can automate task scheduling of backup activity.

HP Mobile Enterprise Printing offers complete support for the mobile workplace, including servers and a wireless printing solution specific to the limited display and storage capabilities of handhelds providing access to attachments without downloading.
