Domino Application Hosting in the Cloud broken down
Tags :cloud hosting LotusLive
IBM finally announced the new Domino Utility Server for LotusLive. since I have gotten pings, a customer call and expect more, let me break down what this means for you, our customer, in the simplest terms I know so far. Let's start with the first part of the announcement:
Based on the same model as the Domino Utility Server, this new license allows you, as LotusLive Notes subscribers, to use the included Notes client for access to Notes/Domino applications
You must be a LotusLive Notes subscriber to be eligible for this server license model. I do not see any minimal user count amount on LotusLive to be eligible, so set a user up over there.
That means that instead of paying per-user software subscription to continue to use Notes/Domino applications, regardless of client/browser access method, you can now switch to a server-only based licensing model. Instead of paying for everyone in an organization to continue to use those applications, you can pay for anyone in the organization to use those applications.
So now both Notes client and browser access are allowed, One cost opens access to everyone in the company
The Domino Utility Server for LotusLive model is available in the IBM Cloud and Amazon models, in addition to on-premises deployments if you are moving or considering a move to the cloud.
If you use LotusLive then you can keep a Domino server in-house or with a partner if you are trying to outsource management, backups, monitoring and more. All for a fixed Domino server license cost.
Special pricing is planned so you can trade up from Domino Enterprise Servers, in conjunction with deployments of LotusLive Notes (or LotusLive Notes and LotusLive Engage).
You can free up Enterprise license cost, per user application costs and more. You must have a user on LotusLive Notes.
The Domino Utility Server for LotusLive licensing model may be utilized with other "pay as you go" offerings through IBM Cloud, Amazon EC2, or business partners providing Domino application hosting services
I have tested the IBM Cloud. You can watch IdoNotes Episode 105 screencast of my trials here. Amazon will allow usage based models (good for very small models) in the public or private.
However, the key is the last part. We (Connectria) are now able to offer you a Domino application server model that you can easily implement at a fixed license cost. Internet connection, private connection, backups, networks, firewalls, monitoring. Just another item to strengthen our position as a Lotus software hosting leader.
