We’ve started work on a version of Herschel in the cloud.

This will be hosted on Microsoft Azure, using their “Remote App” technology. Azure is the cloud behind (above?) companies such as eBay, Boeing, Samsung, GE and BMW.

The Herschel software will look and operate as if you’re running it on your PC – but you’ll actually be running it on a server in the cloud.  All your data and the Herschel application will be safely stored on Azure storage and backed-up automatically. All Herschel software updates will be automatically installed without disrupting your business.

If you’d like to be involved in testing the cloud version of Herschel with your data, please let us know.
