Deploying a scalable IBM Lotus Sametime 8.5.1 environment for small-to-medium businesses

This article explains how to deploy a full-fledged, small-to-medium-business (SMB) IBM Lotus Sametime environment that is scalable, based on the updates made to the Lotus Sametime Installer in version 8.5.1. Instead of the 16 servers required for a full-high availability environment in Lotus Sametime 8.5, this guide shows you how to reduce it two servers with the ability to scale the environment by adding additional server instances when needed.
