Default BES Exchange vs BES Domino

Does anyone have a comprehensive document that outlines the differences between BES Exchange and BES Domino?

My background is BES Domino so I am trying to identify the differences between these two platforms.

In terms of feature sets, nothing really. Your downside with Domino is that everyone knows BES Exchange and BES Domino people are an endangered species - if that's not a reason to go Exchange I don't know what is!!!

Thanks SI....

Obviously there are the native functionality differences between Exchange and Domino, but do these native platform differences impact how BES functions? What I mean is, does Exchange impact the queing of read/unread marks in the mail file? or software configurations or even IT Policies?

I would not say BES Domino is an endangered species, our population just isn't as abundant as Exchange. We could banter all night long about advantages and disadvantages of both platforms.

Not to my knowledge, but I'm not a Domino expert.

Oh no doubt (and I'm convinced Exchange is more problematic)!

It's good to have you on the site, and we need people like you here - we recently had a couple of GroupWise people sign up, so it's nice to see people from different backgrounds - helps us all learn!!

The threading model is different between the two versions (hdawg will have more information on this in his blog regarding BESX versus the already published threading model for BESD). Functionality wise, it really comes down to the interfacing with the messaging system. You have Domino installed on BESD whereas you have a MAPI/CDO client (either ESM or the standalone pack) installed on BESX. You have longer migration periods when using ET in BES 5.0 with BESD (due to the state databases) than you do with BESX.

I believe more time and energy is focused on BESX due to the sheer number of customers with it versus BESD. I also believe there are more issues inherent to BESX due to the instability of CDO and limitations of MAPI (this is not limited to BES, by any stretch of the imagination). I believe someone at RIM said it best when they mentioned that Microsoft's announcement of the end of life of CDO was the best and worst thing that could possibly happen... it's great that they're moving away from such a plagued system, but it now takes an act of God for them to fix any issues reported to them about it.
