Azure App Service

Azure App Service is great if you're starting a new web project and need an infrastructure that is fast, stable, secure, and scalable. The service has a very high up-time, and it supports a variety of languages and technologies (though it really shines with the .NET stack - C#, ASP.NET, Entity Framework, etc.). If you're thinking about porting an existing app over, it may wind up being expensive as far as resources go if the software isn't properly optimized to utilize cloud resources efficiently, so that's something to keep in mind.

HCL Domino

Domino is secure by comparison, due in part by it's lower market share, but also it's native encryption capability. Domino is stable. With fewer changes and revisions, Domino performance can be relied upon with existing infrastructure. Despite its clunky admin console, administration as a whole is easier and more intuitive. The native Domino application language is either Java or LotusScript. Finding developers for the latter application can be troublesome.

Cons

Azure App Service

  • Abstraction of computing resources like Heroku does with dynos.
  • Azure Portal overall is pretty bloated and that affects managing Azure App Service applications.

HCL Domino

  • I am not a fan of the Domino ID for authentication purposes. Some Admins appreciate this feature, but ID aging, updating and management issues are burdensome.
  • Integrations with current available software applications as a result of lower Domino adoption rates.
  • Administration tools are somewhat dated and clunky. Even with updates and patches, the Domino administrator console hasn't changed in years.

Alternatives Considered

Azure App Service

After exhaustive testing, we settled on Azure App Service because we felt they offered the best solutions in the price range we willing to pay for. It also was a natural extension of our website hosting package on Azure, and it is nice to be organized in one place.

HCL Domino

Having administered Domino right out of tech school I have very limited experience with other platforms. Realizing that Exchange is the de facto solution used by the rest of the universe, and now O365\Azure to eliminate on-prem data centers the future of direct platform administration is numbered. I lack the experience to usefully comment on or compare other products.

Return on Investment

Azure App Service

  • Azure App Service has allowed us to quickly deploy high-budget projects very quickly, netting us a healthy profit vs the cost to develop. (We make, on average, about 10x what it costs to get up and running per project thanks to how easy it is to implement a skeleton framework.)
  • Costs are low to run the services thanks to the scaling functionality that comes with Azure App Service. We can utilize less resources during slow times and save hundreds of dollars per month vs costs of traditional servers.

HCL Domino

  • The immediate impact on my organization as a non-profit is cost. Enterprise pricing for a Domino solution is exponentially more inexpensive than more popular applications.
  • Of the most obvious impacts is user familiarity. Given a vast majority of the employment pool having familiarity with MS products, orienting new employees to Domino\Notes is burdensome. Adoption is slow and resistance is high.
  • Hiring Domino administrators and developers is increasingly challenging.
  • The recent sale of the Domino platform away from IBM is concerning.
