IBM Sterling Global Mailbox

High availability for your business

IBM Sterling Global Mailbox helps companies address demands for high availability operations and redundancy with a robust and reliable data storage solution available across geographically distributed locations. The solution supports active-active communications for disruption resiliency and disaster recovery in near real-time.

Sterling Global Mailbox is available for IBM Sterling B2B Integrator and IBM Sterling File Gateway and is designed to work with IBM Sterling Control Center.

Companies need to exchange a variety of business files and documents across a wide variety of use cases – and do so in real-time. These demands put enormous pressure on IT departments to architect a B2B integration platform that is highly available and can execute the just-in-time exchange of critical business information and documents.

Complicating this issue is the fact that many companies that operate regionally disperse data centers for both performance and disaster recovery purposes. Companies go to great lengths and expenses to ensure 24×7 availability, often deploying redundant software and hardware. IBM recognizes the challenge companies encounter trying to meet the demands of high-availability operations – and prepares for any potential disruption or disaster recovery.

To help companies meet these challenges, IBM Sterling Global Mailbox is an optional component of its IBM Sterling B2B Integrator and IBM Sterling File Gateway solutions. This high-availability mailbox capability enables geographical distribution and data replication capabilities that leverage active/active communications. Sterling Global Mailbox makes use of functionality built into other IBM Sterling B2B Collaboration portfolio architectures, as well as other technologies, to deliver a high-availability solution across multiple data centers.

Sterling Global Mailbox - FAQ's

It is used for storing files in mailbox and transferring tiles, and it is an optional application and can be integrated with a sterling integrator or sterling file gateway.

Yes, SI has a built-in mailbox. A user can use the built-in mailbox or the global mailbox if he is expecting additional features like (high availability, data replication etc.

  • High availability: The application is deployed in many regions to make it highly available (if one data center goes down, the application in other regions will make the application available for the users)
  • Data Replication: The copies of data are stored in multiple regions. We can decide in which location the data should be stored to maximize the speed while accessing the data.

We can use protocol like FTP, SFTP, HTTP, HTTPS, AS2 for transferring files.

Global mailbox is a separate application, and it can be used with Sterling integrator or sterling file gateway, whereas built-in the sterling mailbox is a feature of the SI. There are some extra features of a global mailbox, like the high availability of the application and data replication. We can select the region in which our data should be stored.

The virtual root is a particular path that we will give to clients. The benefit of the virtual root is hiding the actual hierarchy of paths like partner knows the directory. Still, he doesn’t know the actual path.

For example, we have a path that /000/111/222/333/444 partner wants to access the 444 directories; here, a virtual root gets into the picture. We create a virtual root so that partner directly connects to the 444 directories. So that partner doesn’t know the path 00/111/222/333, he will directly route to the 444 directories.

Global Mailbox is a facility for creating a directory of mailboxes with sub mailboxes and hosting them across multiple data centers. Messages are created by Global Mailbox for applications (on behalf of trading partners, as application users) and stored in mailboxes.
