WireCAD offers managed cloud storage using the Microsoft Azure cloud. Now you can have your projects stored in the cloud and visible to any WireCAD client with a login to your SQL Azure Account.
WireCAD has been designed to work with MS SQL Azure. You are free to manage your own Azure account or we can do it for you.
Our Cloud Storage program includes one Standard Level Azure database. There are no data or project limits*. We will start it up and manage it for you. All you do is keep your WireCAD Cloud Storage account current and we have made that easy by using a subscription based model that bills your credit card monthly.
Standard Level Azure Database
|Choice of Data Center Location
Q: How many projects can I hold on the database?
A: Unlike the regular WireCAD SQL approach of using one database per project, WireCAD for SQL Azure uses the database schema to store separate projects and your global equipment database all in the same database file.
Q: What are the size limitations of the SQL Azure database?
A: SQL Azure is scalable. This product includes one database that has a size limit of 250Gig. Your typical WireCAD project might require 20Meg of storage. So you could potentially store several thousand projects.
Q: Do I have to use WireCAD Cloud Storage?
A: No. WireCAD can work with SQL Azure, SQL Server, and VISTADB databases. If you just need a stand-alone database that is portable stick with the VISTADB databases. You can always grow from there.
Q: If I shut down my account what happens to my data?
A: Our motto at WireCAD has always been \"It\'s your data!\". Just let us know that you are closing the account and we will export the data and provide it to you.
Q: Are there any minimums?
A: Yes. We require a one year commitment for this program. You are free to cancel anytime after that.
Q: Where are the Azure Datacenters located?
A: Microsoft does not specifically say where the datacenters are located for obvious security reasons. You will have the choice of provisioning a database in one of the following regions:
Q: What do you mean by shared tenancy in the Silver plan?
A: We may group you will other Silver users on a database. This is up to us in the program. You will not be able to see the other tenant\'s data and they will not be able to see yours.
