We have been getting tons of requests from Access developers and DBAs about SQL Server 2012 (previously known as “Denali”) that need multiple databases and other more robust SQL 2012 options. Today we are pleased to announce the availability of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Web Edition for $199/month.
This is the latest installment of Microsoft’s popular database and it includes a number of improvements over previous versions. New improvements SQL 2012 include AlwaysOn for higher availability, Contained Databases to improve on some of the authentication challenges associated with moving databases and FileTables for those apps that manage unstructured data that lives as files outside of the database.
Of course the big advantage of this plan to Access Developers is the ability to create an unlimited number of tables, databases and SQL user logins so that you can manage multiple clients, databases, projects and Access applications from the same secure cloud-based location. If you have any further questions, please check out our SQL 2012 webpage and feel free to chat online with a sales representative or contact us via email.

Windows Remote Desktop Services is a powerful way to access your company information, files and databases from anywhere with an available internet connection. Remote Desktop users that purchase one of our dedicated virtual servers can run all of their company software (Microsoft Office, Access Databases, Accounting Software, etc.) online instead of from their local hard drives. Our Windows RDP Virtual Appliances have dedicated resources for each customer which guarantees system performance, absolute security, and access to everything from anywhere. The Best part is that the cost is fixed per employee and paid monthly.
Purchasing a remote desktop dedicated hosting plan offers much more flexibility and control than our shared plans. All of our virtual appliances allow for administrator access that will let you customize your remote desktop environment and install your own corporate software and programs. More importantly, our hosting plans will save you money on costly servers, network maintenance, IT support, and bandwidth charges. Because we charge monthly per head, whether your business shrinks or grows your IT costs will always stay in line with your operation. No risky overspending, and no unexpected costs should you suddenly need to expand.
Since SharePoint 2010 with Access Services has been released, we have gotten requests from customers looking to prevent users from opening their Access application. Many developers want the only user experience to be the browser based version of their application and our video tutorial hack is too limiting and simply not good enough. Well, as you can see from the picture above, we have finally figured out a way to remove the Options Menu (and subsequently the Open in Access option) from any Access Web Database. This customization has been widely requested and is yet another feature that Office 365 does not offer. Unfortunately because of how SharePoint 2010 was designed and coded, this customization requires that we alter SharePoint master pages and is therefore only available with a virtual private server. If you are interested in this feature, it is now available with any of our SharePoint Virtual Appliances which are only $499 and include 10 users and 5GB of storage space.
