Jive SBS, or "Social Business Software" (formerly known as Clearspace) is a commercial Java EE-based Enterprise 2.0 collaboration and knowledge management tool produced by Jive Software. It was first released as "Clearspace" in 2006, and was renamed SBS in March 2009.
Jive SBS integrates the functionality of online communities, microblogging, social networking, discussion forums, blogs, wikis, and IM under one unified user interface. From a user perspective, input is fairly format-agnostic as collaborative content placed into any system (blog, wiki, documentation, etc.) can later be retrieved through use of a common search interface. Other features include RSS capability, email integration, a reputation and reward system for participation, personal user profiles, JAX-WS web service interoperability, and integration with the Spring framework.
The product is a pure-Java server-side web application and will run on any platform where Java (JDK 1.5 or better) is installed. It does not require a dedicated server - SBS users have reported successful deployment in both shared environments and multiple machine clusters.
Jive SBS Server Requirements
- Application Servers
Jive ships with its own embedded Apache HTTPD and Tomcat servers as part of the install package. It is not possible to deploy the application onto other appservers
- Jive recommends a server with at least 4GB of RAM and a dualcore 2 GHz processor.
- SBS easily integrates with an LDAP repository or Active Directory.
- For optimal deployment with a large community Jive recommends:
- dedicated cache and document conversion servers be used
- The application and database servers be hosted separately.
