Reduce the hardware needed for the Pink components

as of now I would never install it at a customer. Is way too heavy.

    first ... Connections is a GREAT PRODUCT.

    But HCL should do the same thing they are doing now with HCL sametime v11. SIMPLIFY.

    FEW partners will attempt to sell Connections if it depends on installing a stack of heterogeneous products (ibm-db2, ibm-websphere, ibm-http, ibm-cognos, tivoli, etc). This complexity is for initial installation, upgrades and daily administration.

    NO customer will do a POC, or will try to install this product seeing its complexity, hardware requirements and technical skills.

    We need them to simplify infrastructure and reduce the footprint.

    Previously, we had the option of cloud (SaaS: zero work), now there is only the option onpremises (too complex)

    We are working to streamline installation for the Component Pack to make it much easier to deploy, especially for smaller deployments.

    YES PLEASE - currently small /medium customers can not justify the amount of resource. Not everyone can or wants to move to the cloud
