Lotus Domino

Definition - What does Lotus Domino mean?

Lotus Domino is business collaboration software developed by IBM for hosting critical applications, messaging (enterprise-grade email) and workflow, and providing security features for business-critical information.

Lotus Domino can be used as a Web server and/or as an application server for the Lotus Notes application, the client side of a client-server collaborative application.

Techopedia explains Lotus Domino

Lotus Domino uses a document-oriented database called a notes storage facility to manage data such as rich text documents (formatted text and images) and other document files with attachments. This database is the central component of the Domino architecture.

Core services include the following server functions: Web, database, email, applications, and directory.

Lotus Domino products are released simultaneously with the same version of Lotus Notes client products. Lotus Domino products include:

  • Collaboration Express
  • Enterprise Server
  • Messaging Express
  • Messaging Server
  • Utility Express
  • Utility Server
  • Access for Microsoft Outlook
  • Administrator Client
  • Designer Client
  • Document Manager
  • Everyplace
  • IBM Lotus iNotes (known as IBM Lotus Domino Web Access before 2008)
  • Lite Mode (for slow connections)
  • Ultralite Mode (for the Safari browser on an Apple iPhone)
  • Unified Communications
  • Lotus Notes Traveler

Although Lotus Domino is independent of the hardware or software used, the version of Lotus Domino supported by the operating system must be the one released at about the same time as the operating system release.
