Entertainment site Contactmusic .com expects a return on investment in less than six months after becoming one of the first UK users to roll out the latest version of IBM's Lotus Domino software.

The company, which launched in 2000 using IBM xSeries servers running Windows 2000, upgraded to Lotus Domino 6.5 earlier this year to cope with its rapid growth, which has seen page impressions jump by two million a month to five million. It has also upgraded its servers to support the growth and new software.

"We were having some problems running the site using version 5 of Domino," said Anthony Johnson, technical director at Contactmusic. "As we got busier we needed to get the upgrade to improve the stability, the replication speeds and the spam filtering on the site."

The investment needed to get the new software licences and upgrade the hardware to run version 6.5 will be paid back easily within six months, according to Johnson.
