Server & Network Info

For fast, secure and reliable database access over small and large networks, we use server software called Advantage Database Server (ADS).

Heard of Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server?

Take away the hefty price tag and complicated setup, and you’ve got ADS.

ADS can be installed in a matter of minutes and will work quietly in the background on your main server computer ensuring that Insight is running safely and optimally over your network…whether you have 2 computers or 200.


Advantage is licensed on a per computer basis and each license costs only $200. Compared to most of our competitors who are charging $300 or more for each computer, it is easy to see that choosing Insight with the Advantage Database Server for your network is a great bargain.


Data Integrity.

Before products like ADS, all of the computers on your network accessed your files at the same time so if one machine was turned off or rebooted while performing a task, the chances of file corruption were very high.

ADS removes this risk by allowing each computer to communicate with the ADS server individually. If a computer is restarted while Insight is running, your data is safe and secure because ADS is protecting it.


Since ADS is doing all of the work for each of the other computers, there is a lot less information to transmit to each computer over your network (cable or wireless). Insight is much faster when using ADS. Most networks slow down as you add more and more computers but ADS will be able to provide the same speed for both small and large networks.
