Data Access Worldwide announced their plans for DataFlex in the Cloud at the DataFlex International Software Developers (DISD) Conference in March this year.

For a long time it’s been difficult to tell if ’the Cloud’ was a short term trend, but it’s not, it’s very much here to stay, changing the fundamental way in which we work and making private servers a thing of the past.

What is the DataFlex Cloud?

Data Access have responded to the Cloud explosion by offering their DataFlex Cloud solution to help simplify and reduce the cost of deploying DataFlex web applications in the Cloud.

The DataFlex Cloud will initially provide pre-configured, cloud-ready DataFlex software, including:

  • DataFlex WebApp Servers
  • DataFlex Windows and Web Clients
  • optionally, Report Writer, Connectivity Kits and Dynamic AI

Why use the DataFlex Cloud?

The aim of the DataFlex Cloud is to make it as easy and cost efficient as possible for developers to deploy, scale and manage their software applications in the Cloud.

End users will no longer need to worry about the expense and technical issues associated with having their own hardware. Developers will be able to focus on developing software, confident that the DataFlex Cloud will provide a smooth path for deployment and infrastructure.

Private servers were great when there was no alternative. However, now they represent a cost that’s unaffordable and unreasonable for the future. Why buy more hardware for your DataFlex system requirements when you can simply use DataFlex in the Cloud on a pay-as-you-go basis?

Wave Good Bye to perpetual licences - Say Hello to Pay as You Go

Yes, it sounds almost too good to be true doesn’t it? The possibility that the often complex and challenging task of calculating the licensing requirements for an application could be a thing of the past. Well, for those who choose the DataFlex Cloud it will be a reality.

Using the DataFlex Cloud means that users traditional licences will be replaced by pay-as-you-go pricing.

Thinking of moving your systems to the DataFlex Cloud?

Moving to the DataFlex Cloud is much less daunting than you might think. If you’ve reached a point where you’re considering new servers, you could find the long term advantages and savings of moving to the DataFlex Cloud an attractive proposition.
