Putting Access in the Cloud
Why would you want to do this? Many people like Access because it is not cloud based. You can run data-driven applications built in Microsoft Access on your local PC or network. Many of today’s software programs are cloud based and charge recurring monthly fees that grow as the number of users increase using the database. This can get super expensive for expanding companies. The cost really adds up as the years go by. WSI can help you keep your great Access database running in the manner it does now. WSI can also migrate your Access database to the cloud. This can be beneficial if you have more than 10 users outside of your office. You may want to rent your Access database’s capability to others and charge those monthly per user fees! If so, the best way to do these things at the lowest cost is to have WSI help you put your Access database application on Microsoft’s Azure cloud. This eliminates the need to manage an on-premise server, expose your local server to the Internet and many other benefits, such as being able to put your database or a copy of it close to users located in a foreign county. Microsoft has data centers all over the world which allows you to put the database close to users. This is good for both speed and new regulatory requirements like Europe’s GDPR. (General Data Protection Regulation) WSI can put your Access database in the cloud with little or no change depending on how your database is currently set-up. The reason this is possible is because we rely on Microsoft’s RDP (remote desktop protocol) software running on users’ remote PC’s to connect to your database running on a Windows server virtual machine on Azure. This might sound complicated, but it isn’t with WSI there to guide you every step of the way. WSI can set-up your Azure account, put your database on Azure and take care of making sure the server gets its Windows updates and is backed up properly.
