Hidden Gems in Domino 8.5.2: Overview of Improvements in DAOS Catalog
Another great find (this tech note just came out today) of some improvements that have found their way into DAOS in 8.5.2.
I am really liking DAOS now (I always have, it’s more an increase of like-iness) . It is so much easier to sell a client on DAOS now as the feature has been around for a while and you can show and document the evolution of issues, their resolution and the current state of the product. Along with the DAOS estimator that kind of documentation is a powerful tool that can be used to overcome allot of rather irrational fears.
IBM – Overview of 8.5.2 Improvements in DAOS Catalog.
Many clients are – understandable – hesitant to do anything with attachments … it gets them all nervous. Once you can show them the advantages though it becomes easier – especially if you start talking of performance increases on the server and that even if they get nervous – DAOS is bound to each server individually and that makes them feel safer if some other server has the “full” (a misnomer, but effective) replica.
I like to introduce it on to servers that are used for archiving, back-up and redundancy. Back-up times are quicker, tapes are fewer, AV scans are MUCH quicker and the server (usually not the fasted one in the crowd) performs better. A great way to get a client comfortable and then have them implement it system wide.

Open Mic Webcast : Linux for the IBM Sametime Admin (04/09/2014)

WebSphere – The Basics on Security, Directories and Federated Repositories
Sun, Mar 16th 2014 9:13a Victor Toal I had promised earlier this year to post more content (other than opinion and news) so I am now catching up on my promise. This post was inspired by a combined WebSphere – IBM Connections review review I did for a client earlier this year, along with some content from my IBM Connections admin training that I offer and that the same client asked me to give after they read my review of their environment. This is the first in a small series of blog-posts on security and configuration in WebSp [read] Keywords: admin
