What is the advantage of using a Web Database?
At first glance, Caspio Bridge may seem like any other desktop database application. However, there is a crucial difference: the data is not stored on your computer's hard drive, but over the Internet on Caspio's servers. This presents benefits not available with a desktop database:
|Location Independence – Your data is available wherever you have access to the Internet. This is similar to the way a web-based email system gives you the freedom to access your email from anywhere. You can work with your tables and data from your office computer in the morning and from your home computer in the evening. You can be on the other side of town or the other side of the world and have the same access to your data.|
|Safety and Security – Your database is protected using industry leading methods and practices. All data is backed-up daily and redundant servers are on standby in case of hardware failure. Superior security practices and firewalls keep intruders away, and optional Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption can further protect all your communication with the server.|
|Ease of Sharing and Collaboration – With Caspio Bridge, you can share data with as many people as you want, regardless of their physical location. Any Caspio App you create can have unlimited end-users. You no longer need to email database files or spreadsheets back and forth. You can streamline your workflow with the confidence that everyone is working with the same information.|
|Scalability – A typical desktop database is designed for one user or machine. While Caspio Bridge may look like a desktop application, it is the front end of a powerful server-based database platform. This is how Caspio Bridge can meet any company's needs, regardless of size. This means that your data can grow exponentially without the restrictive limits of your desktop computer's memory, storage, or processing power.|
|Simple Integration with your Website – Data is not very useful if it cannot be easily accessed. Caspio Bridge's DataPage wizards help you create custom forms, reports, and complete robust applications without having to learn or use a programming language. The DataPages are bound directly to your database and can be easily placed on your own web sites.|
