How can I setup Ezy Invoice to work on the cloud or over the Internet ?

Ezy Invoice is a Windows desktop software. This means that the software and your database is easily downloaded onto your own Windows PC or network infrastructure. Since the program and your database are stored on your own computers, you are in full control of your database and there are no ongoing hosting subscriptions to pay. In a standard installation on your own PC or network, it is not accessible over the cloud. If you would like to access it over the cloud, there are a few ways you can set this up :

1. Client/ Server Version : The first way is to subscribe to a Windows Cloud or Virtual Private Server (VPS) with a service provider. You will then install our database server software and upload your data files on this cloud server or VPS. Then have Ezy Invoice installed on yours as well as your staffs own computers. (You will need our Client/Server version of Ezy Invoice for this.) Then connect to your own database server on your VPS or cloud server. With this method, you can add more users have have multiple users concurrently connect and use Ezy Invoice across the Internet. Ezy Invoice is still installed on your own computers but you are accessing your database from your Virtual Private Server over the Internet .

One such service provider is Infinitely Virtual.  To set it up yourself, please see instructions here.

2. Remote Desktop/ Terminal Server : Another way is to use Remote Desktop. You will need to subscribe to a Windows Terminal Server from a service provider. Install Ezy Invoice program and the database on this terminal server. Every time you want to use it, just login remotely to your terminal server. Examples of service providers are Infinitely Virtual . With this method, you can connect to your terminal server using your Android tablet device, Ipad or Windows surface tablet using Remote Desktop Connections. Ezy Invoice is not installed on your own devices. Both Ezy Invoice and your database are installed on your terminal server only. When each user connects to the terminal server remotely, it is like they are connecting to their own windows desktop computer.
