Microsoft Access database hosting – Your Access database online


Share your Microsoft Access database online application with colleagues in your office, in other offices, on the road, or anywhere in the world over the internet without forking out for expensive on site servers, complicated networks, VPNs or re-coding of your application.

Access database hosting from Your Office Anywhere provides you with an enterprise class hosted remote desktop server (terminal server) where you can run Microsoft Access online like a web database and make it available for all your colleagues to use at the same time, no matter where they are.

What’s more, because the only thing to install on their computers is a remote desktop client, which is available for most modern operating systems, your colleagues can use your hosted Access database on any device: Windows, Mac, iPad or Android.

Hosting MS Access Database testimonial from one of our customers

Hosted Access Database Solution

I was looking for a solution that would enable easy sharing of a fairly complex MS Access Database across multiple machines and locations.   I wanted to avoid installing my own server with all the cost and management issues that can bring.  I also wanted to be able to scale this as the business grows without having high monthly costs in the interim.  I found the services offered by Your Office Anywhere and they seemed to understand my needs and within 2 weeks, my Access Database was running in the cloud – easy!

I love the ability that this gives me to run MS Remote Desktop on my Mac, therefore allowing me to have my windows database running as an App on my Mac without running a Virtual Machine or Bootcamp.   I can also get my Database on my iPad and my iPhone – with full functionality.

After 6+ months running this system, I have only needed the support team once – and they responded and fixed my issue within hours.  Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this service – it works brilliantly for me
