Microsoft Access Migration And Sync

Microsoft Access is a one of the most popular entry-level desktop database management system available today. MS Access uses a familiar Microsoft Office UI which makes it understandable enough even to less 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 access data needs to be published 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 database.

Top 5 Reasons to Migrate from Microsoft Access to Server databases:
  1. Deployment of information. Migrating Access to a server based solution opens up your possibilities to utilize your data. 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, increasing its value.

    Your database becomes more accessible over the Web. Although Access provides some capabilities for making a web-based database, there is undoubtedly a wider range of options available for server databases. In addition, the web interface is the best solution for providing a platform-independent entry point to your information. Browsers on many types of machines and devices can access it.

  2. Management of large databases. The total size for an Access database is limited to about 2 Gb. Server dbms routinely manage terabytes of data efficiently.

  3. Multi-user access. MS Access is generally intended for a single-user environment in a local use scenario. Although Access provides capabilities for data sharing, that is not really its strength. A server database offers the ability to manage large amounts of data efficiently. Such server database were designed from the beginning to run in a networked environment for supporting large numbers of clients simultaneously.

  4. Integrity and Backup management.Migrating data from Access to a server-side database provides benefits for data integrity and backups. Server databases provide centralized places to store data and automated capabilities for performing backups exist for all popular database platforms. Backup can be more complicated for individual Access users who store their data locally.

  5. Hardware/ Platform choices. Server database engines run on several platforms including Linux, Unix and Windows. If you use Access you are limited to the Windows family OS exclusively.
