Vaughan Rivett recently posted an online video and a calculator showcasing the cost saving advantages of Lotus Foundations vs the ‘competition’ aka Microsoft Small Business Server.
Unfortunately, for us North American folks, the pricing is in New Zealand dollars. But none the less, it shows you the advantages of going with a more efficient platform. Mind you, he is playing nice and hasn’t even mentioned the included one-touch backup technology that’s already built in. On the Microsoft side, you have no competing technology ‘yet’.
I have put together a video clip which shows how to compare the price of Lotus Foundations with the price of a Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS). I had offered a calculator on a previous blog post, but there appeared to be some questions in regards to comparing apples for apples. There may also have been some questions about where I got the final figures from.
Before we get to the calculator here is a video which gives an explanation of how to interpret the results:
