Deploying scalable Sametime

I was just notified about this great article on IBM developer works written by Andy Yiu from IBM. It details how to deploy a scalable Lotus Sametime 8.5.1 environment on a minimum of two servers with the ability to expand as and when needed.

Things discussed at Lotusphere BoF session

There were a number of things discussed in out BoF session at Lotusphere that I would like to address in this blog:
  • HTTPS access to the meeting server - how to set this up (watch this blog space)
  • Red Book on Sametime deployment - only available online at present
    LINK: Sametime 8.5 Enterprise Scale Deployment
  • Can we get a VMWare image with everything loaded on it? (Andy Higgins will investigate)
  • Multi-tenancy Sametime install (Frank Altenburg to report on this option)
  • Setting configuration options as "grayed-out" options i.e. non-changeable. This is done through plugin_customization.ini and Frank Altenburg was going to address these.

Sametime 8.5.2 released in beta

You all probably know that the beta release of ST 8.5.2 has been released. I have a copy and am installing it as I blog.... I need to read the fine print to see how much I can talk about it, so watch this space.

The first post

Hi all,
 This is the newly set up Sametime Discussion blog for all those people who attended my Birds of a Feather session at Lotusphere in 2011. I hope to be able to share ST information and provoke discussion on various ST topics on this blog. I hope to grow this blog too, so please feel free to add more people to the distribution.
