What Good Is It?
We enable you to write a modern client-side web application working entirely in your IDE running all code in the browser. No ReST API needed. No ReST Server needed.
More specifically, what does the service do?
How does it work, or how do I use it?
Can I use RdbHost databases from the browser directly?
Yes, see http://jsdemos.noservercoding.com.
Why would I use it, instead of ... (Amazon EC2, my VPS, etc)?
See the Comparisons page for a set of thumbnail comparisons with other services.
Does it support binary data?
Does it scale?
Do you support SSL-encrypted content?
Yes, requests can be handled on https, or http. We support your using your own SSL certificate, and can provide you an SSL cert.
Do you support SQL transactions?
Yes, all SQL operations are executed as transactions. See How It Works for details.
What restrictions apply?
Ordinary queries must complete within 8 seconds. The server will abort the query and return an error page at 8 seconds.
For those queries that cannot be tuned to complete in 8 seconds, we offer a deferred request option, where the slow query is queued to run in a background task, and the request returns immediately. The server will, at your option, call a postback page with results when the slow query completes. The time limit for slow queries is 10 minutes.
How do I get my data out? Am I locked in?
There is a bulk transfer utility, that will transfer complete databases, in ascii or other formats, to and from your browser or other client. The utility also provides for transferring databases to and from Amazon S3.
What does it cost?
