cloud service

todler | 04/01/2015

the new version of shopmate can have its data in a cloud service. i'm not very conversant with computers, i just know how to browse internet and run programs. i have two repair shops about half a kilometer apart. does anyone know how to have database in cloud so that both sites can use it?
thank you in advance.

Yes, I've done it recently. Get yourself an account at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/, they give you one month free. Create azure sql server and Database with the name you want so that shopmate can overwrite it with the same name.
You must setup the sql server firewall with ip addresses of all computers you allow to connect and on all of these setup the firewall to allow outgoing communication for port 1433 and you are ready to go.

arden would you know when exactly I should check the Trust Server Certificate chekbox in shopmate server connection form? I am not sure and the help does not say much about it.

If you install a certificate from trusted authority on your azure sql server then yes, select the checkbox, otherwise no.

Thanks arden. In your opinion, is this service expensive? I can see the benefit in being able to connect from multiple sites.

arden | 05/02/2015

No. When you consider you do not have to maintain expensive server infrastructure yourself it is worth it. You only pay for data download, meaning when shopmate retrieves data to its forms, you do not pay for data you create and shopmate saves (upload).
