Consolidation of thousands of Notes databases needs vast amounts of network bandwidth and vast storage capacity on your consolidated Domino servers.
WAN bandwidth and Domino server storage are commonly recurring and permanently growing monthly costs. They drastically reduce the needs for Notes related network bandwidth and consolidated Domino server storage and thus deliver ultra-fast ROI as well as recurring savings.
For these reasons, they are very much appreciated by IBM Notes / Domino customers doing server consolidation. The reason why consolidation of IBM Domino Servers dramatically increases the need for WAN bandwidth between your IBM Notes users and your consolidated Domino servers is very easy to understand.
Before the Domino server consolidation, John sending an email with a 4 MB attached file to 10 users generates only local traffic, like shown in the pictures below: But when the Domino servers of your company are consolidated, you do not have local email servers anymore.
IBM Domino server consolidation generally puts high amounts of pressure on your Wide Area Network.
Frequently underestimated when specifying the consolidation project, this issue commonly appears when the Domino server consolidation is completed and when your IBM Notes users starts complaining about degradation of response times.
In this document, after examining why Domino server consolidation systematically causes a huge increase in WAN bandwidth needs, we will give you hints, based on our solutions, to deal with this issue.
We will also show you how to reduce by 25% to 45% your need for Notes storage when you move your NSF databases to your consolidated servers.
So, when sending an email to another person in the same building, your email has to go up to the consolidated server (that is located outside your building, maybe thousands of miles away) and back to the email recipient.
After Domino server consolidation, the same email containing a 4 Megabyte attached file sent by John to the same 10 recipients: now generates 44 MB of WAN traffic on your consolidated infrastructure: WAN Upload: 4 MB + WAN Download: 40 MB = 44 MB Total WAN Traffic After Domino server consolidation, for the same service of sending a 4 MB email to 10 persons located in your office, 44 MB of traffic are produced on your WAN (instead of 0 MB before consolidation)!
On the top of this, for databases stored on consolidated servers and not locally replicated, 4 Mbytes of WAN traffic are generated each time a user opens (and so download) again the 4 Mbyte file attached to the email received from John's stored in his/her mail database.
