Publishing corporate databases on the cloud: here’s how

by Matteo Sirri on 10/23/2015

Finding a way to publish company network data to the internet has become an everyday necessity. Consider, for example, just the use of mobile terminals which usually connect through cellular networks.

The solutions used most often are expensive, and neither very practical nor very secure: either you create VPNs that extend to mobile devices, or you are forced to open your company network to incoming access from the public internet, and sooner or later a few hackers will find their way in.

The alternative is to move your data to the public cloud, but this is not always possible because of privacy issues, and it also requires expensive integration and synchronization systems.

What you need is a system that can make your company data available through the public cloud, but without needing to open your network to the outside, without needing to copy the data to a public server, and without needing to write even one line of code.

Starting today, this idea is a reality: it’s Cloud Connector from Instant Developer.

How does it work? It’s based on a secure agent created using node.js that has to be installed on company servers. Using a special configuration, it creates a secure outgoing connection to servers on the cloud that will publish its data. At this point, applications developed with Instant Developer Cloud can access the data through the secure agent, as if it were a local database.

You might wonder if accessing a database over the internet will be fast enough. In the case of Cloud Connector, our tests say the answer is yes, thanks to compressed data transfer and the asynchronous architecture it’s based on.

Through Instant Developer’s Cloud Connector, the days of demilitarized zones, expensive integrations, and privacy problems are over. Your data remain secure and can be published however you want. Beginning today, the public cloud is closer for everyone: just click this link and download the secure agent. The installation and configuration instructions are included.
