Cloud is great, but sometimes you want local data too. This session takes a look at how to synchronize your data between Amazon’s cloud-based data hosting (AWS) and InterBase local storage. Learn the advantages of such a system and when you might want such an architecture.

What is Local Cloud?

  • There is no “Cloud”. It’s just somebody else’s computer.
  • The Cloud is a server someone else manages for you!

Cloud Benefits

  • Reduces internal workload and effort while leveraging the expertise of specialists.
  • Cut costs and enable focus on core business instead of being impeded by IT obstacles.

Cloud Drawbacks

  • Reduced control
  • Privacy issues
  • Security concerns
  • Jurisdiction complications
