Microsoft Access is a one of the most popular entry-level desktop database management system. MS Access with a familiar Microsoft Office user interface is understandable enough even non-experienced database developers.
Our DBConvert tools make it possible to scale MS Access Applications when they need to be upsized to enterprise level solutions or publish your access data to the web. DBSync apps are able to easily replicate data between MS Access and other DBMS.
Both MS Access x86 and Access x64 databases are supported.
Note that all Access related converters and sync tools are able to move data between two Access databases configured as a source and a target db.
Deployment of information. Migrating Access to a server based solution opens up the number of opportunities. Any kind of server-based client can use the information, not just Access. This allows your data to be exploited extensively in more contexts, and by more people.
Your database becomes more accessible over the Web. Although Access provides some capabilities for making a web-based database, but there is a wider range of options for server databases. In addition, the web interface is the best solution for providing a platform-independent entryway to your information. Browsers on many types of machines can access it.
Management of large databases. Total size for an Access database is limited to about 2 Gb. Server dbms can manage terabytes of data efficiently.
Multi-user access. MS Access is generally intended for a single-user environment for local use. Although Access provides capabilities for data sharing, that is not really its strength. A server database offers ability to manage large amounts of data efficiently. They were designed from the beginning to run in a networked environment for servicing huge numbers of clients simultaneously.
Integrity and Backup management.Migrating data from Access to server-side database provides a benefit for data integrity and backups. Server databases have centralized place to store data and automated capabilities for performing backups exist for all popular database engines. Backup can be more complicated for individual Access users who store their data locally.
Hardware/ Platform choices. Server database engines run on several platforms including Linux, Unix and Windows. If you use Access you are limited to Windows family OS only.
