What is Lotus Domino?
Lotus Domino is one developed by IBM Collaboration software for hosting critical applications, messaging (e-mail functions) and work processes as well as security functions 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 collaborative client-server application.
Lotus Domino uses a document-oriented database called the Notes Store 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.
The core services include the following server functions: web, database, email, applications, and directory.

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