The Domino server was being shut down. We imported the data and made it available for archive queries.
More and more we are seeing Domino infrastructures either being shut down completely or rationalised drastically. But one of the problems faced when doing this is what to do with the data. NSF2 offers the ability to get rid of your own Domino infrastructure but retain access to the data that you need, and better still make it simple to access from other applications.
