Access 2013 and Azure/Sharepoint

Hi all,

I have an Access 2003 database that has been used by a client for some years now, and they have asked me to update it to a newer version of Access. they are now using MS Azure for cloud hosting of the majority of their files, and have asked me if it's possible to move the database to the cloud after it's converted to a new version (it's split into a front and back end). I have just been reading this article (dated some time ago - 2012), but from what I've gleaned on here it seems that hosting in the cloud may no longer be supported. Can anyone elaborate/bring me up to date?

Cheers,

Pau

Hi Pau,

If the article was referring to Access Web Applications (AWA), it has been discontinued by Microsoft last April. However, you can still migrate your data to SQL Azure and use your existing Access front end to connect to the data. So, the data is in the cloud, but the application is not.
