LotusLive Hosted Notes - the comparison chart

Tags :

Ed has blogged about all of the exciting news on hosted LotusLive Notes .  The bloggers had some great things to say as well.  I took a lot of notes and began to chart it out the differences between our hosting at Connectria the last ten years and LotusLive Notes.  It was good enough to share:

Connectria Hosting
LotusLive Notes
On-site backups included No, separate agreement with Sonian that moves your data again
Retention default included No retention default native to LotusLive Notes
Restores included No statement on restores
Mail template customization allowed No mail template customization

Application support !!! (based on your license) No application support

Dedicated hardware No, shared hardware and actual Domino server
Ability to change Domino tasks and intervals No, shared Domino server
Dedicated connectivity to your server No, every tenant is sharing a network connection to the server
Dedicated firewall for your Domino server No, every tenant is sharing a firewall to the server

The list is not complete yet, and we do share some things in common.  But, I needed to organize my thoughts as we are getting calls to explain the difference and how we stand out.  I think this is a great beginning.
