1 No operating system is needed. Lotus Protector for Mail Security 2.8.1 software includes a Linux operating system, and runs natively on IBM System x hardware.

2 Different CPUs will work and may only change throughput results

3 Different memory sizes will work and may only change throughput results

4 Requires a DVD ROM minimum to install Lotus Protector

5 Controllers BR10i, MR10i, BR10il, HBA verified for Raid. MR10i must be used with more than 2 Raid mirror sets

6 The 10k or 15k RPM disk speed is recommended. Different disk sizes and speeds will work and may only change throughput results. Minimum storage size if you do not plan to retain blocked spam = 40GB. If you plan to retain blocked spam, your approximate minimum storage per disk = 40GB + (emails\day x retention days x 0.000007 GB)

7 A redundant power supply is not required but provides more reliability

8 Measured filtering of incoming internet emails of average 19kB size with pre-filters turned off. IP pre-filtering and SMTP pre-filtering increase throughput.
