Advantage Internet Connector: High performance, speed, and reliability
The Advantage Internet Connector, while not a software product in itself, is a license that allows an unlimited number of Internet users access to a single copy of the Advantage Database Server software. An Internet user is any person using an application that interacts with a Web server or middleware software product via an Internet connection to gain access to data from an Advantage Database Server. The Advantage Internet Connector allows access to Advantage from an application for one company, not multiple companies as in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. To host an application using Advantage in a SaaS model for multiple companies to access, please contact Advantage Sales for subscription pricing options.
The Web server or middleware must be a product that physically interacts with the data on behalf of the remote Internet user, rather than just a router or VPN-like product that simply routes the data between the remote client machine and the Advantage Database Server. You must purchase an Advantage Internet Connector license for each server that is running the Advantage Database Server and is being accessed by an Internet user.
