    Domino Single Copy Template Rocks! Saves disk space and and disk reads.

    One customer of mine, has outsourced a backup to one IT Company. They have limit how big amount of data they can backup per month, customer said that backuped amount of data is 8 time more then they should.  

    Checked backup policy, and whether Tivoli is used in a proper way, (FULL+Daily incremental backup (Transactional Logs)) enabled LZ1 attachment compression.

    After I have enabled Single Copy Template on this Server the amount of diskspace that mail folder allocates Dropped from 24,9GB to 13,9GB!!!
    Almost half of the volume!!!  Customer is on 8.x, so I think after upgrade to 8.5 and after DAOS implementation Mail File volume will be at least Two times less.

    One thing I am missing with STC is some kind of settings, that After I upgrade a server, server may notice that STC was used, so new Mail template that is shipped with this new release should also have STC checkbox checked.

    Just wonder, when we will get to the point where we'll have all the functionality and data stored but do not use any disk space at all. lim (DAOS + SCT + Design/Document/LZ1 compression ) ==> 0.0 :-)

    It would be interesting to note if this technote is still a concern.

    iNotes/DWA is not supported with SCT.

    Randy, the technote you reference does not say iNotes isn't supported with SCT. It says it isn't recommended. There is a big difference between those. :-) The technote just makes a vague reference to "browser, HTTP, and server performance concerns that may arise with its use". I have used SCT with iNotes for a while and never had any issues.

    Thanks for rising issue with STC and performance

    Starting from 8.x iNotes is included in standard template, so I think there is no option to use mail template that has no iNotes. if STC is still supported, I think it should be no problem to use mail8.ntf with STC.
