Single-site model

The single-site model is suitable for single-site organizations as well as for organizations with high-speed and low-use WAN connections.

Hardware sizing can be roughly estimated from the number of users. For detailed recommendations, see the Hardware recommendations chapter.

Sizing is also affected by the Archive Manager message policies applied to GroupWise after Archive Manager is implemented. Specifically, hardware requirements will increase if messages are kept on the mail server for only short periods (for example, <15 days), since users will access the Archive Manager system far more extensively than if messages are kept 30 or 60 days.

Multi-site model

The multi-site model can be used where WAN links are high-speed and low-utilization, and the remote connected sites have 100 or fewer users.

To lower the bandwidth requirements even further from the default installation, Archive Manager can be configured to ‘Dataload’ email messages from the remote sites at regularly scheduled times of the day.
