What Domino R12 and ONE Cup Of Coffee Have In Common

    "What does Domino R12 and ONE Cup Of Coffee Have In Common"?

    First, if you know me, then you know I love my coffee.  Simple - a little cream, a little sweetener - and I am a happy man.

    Second, if you know me, then you know I love Domino (I didn't get "The Unofficial Poster Child for Notes and Domino" title for nothing).

    So, what's the point?

    This morning, I woke up and decided to upgrade two Domino servers from R11 to R12.   Now, I didn't enable any of the new R12 features (yet), but just to get the servers upgraded.    So, I made a cup of coffee, went into my office, and started the process.   From download to INI "tweaks" to completing the upgrade of two servers took less time than it took for me to finish one cup of coffee.  

    Yes - the process was that quick - that painless - and everything works as it did before (mail, apps, web).  In a word, flawless.   And my coffee was still quite hot when done.

    Try THAT with a 'competitive' product!

    As a customer, I really appreciate the efficiency of the upgrade process.  Hats off to HCL - well done!  Next up, since I have the CCB license, I am going to consolidate the servers.    

    I have the consolidation plan done, and I think this may actually take TWO cups of coffee.

    How can I get any happier than that?

    Happy Computing!
