PowerServer

Deploy Your PowerBuilder Desktop Apps
to the Cloud, Rapidly. 

PowerServer automatically deploys PowerBuilder desktop apps to the Cloud and .NET framework. Existing PowerBuilder skills and source code can be leveraged. There is no faster, scalable approach to Cloud-enable mission-critical systems built with PowerBuilder.

Why Choose PowerServer?

Lowest Cost and Risk

PowerServer automatically converts most existing PowerBuilder source code, including complex DataWindows and frameworks. Subsequent maintenance is performed in the PowerBuilder IDE, keeping the existing development team highly productive and minimizing disruptions. A typical project can be completed in just months or even weeks rather than years!

Powerful Remote Access

Allow remote users to work securely over a standard Internet connection. End Users access your PowerBuilder apps via leading Web browsers for Windows OS or as Installable Web Apps (IWAs). IWAs stay resident on the desktop and run without a Web browser, minimizing configuration issues. Application deployment is centralized and updates are delivered automatically. There is also the option to deploy DataWindow reports and limited PowerBuilder functionality to iOS and Android using the Appeon Workspace.

Desktop User Experience

Experience powerful UI and features typical of sophisticated desktop apps. Now you no longer need to choose between accessibility and functionality. In fact, you can even seamlessly integrate with other Windows apps and OLEs/OCXs/DLLs, access Windows APIs, and utilize peripheral devices. The rich UI is not only more intuitive, but also eliminates the need for end user retraining.

Native .NET Technologies

The middle tier of PowerServer is powered by Web standards and the .NET framework. As such, your PowerBuilder application deploys to the Microsoft IIS server and is compatible with leading cloud providers. Your PowerBuilder projects can interop with other .NET or Java applications through REST APIs.

What Developers Say

“PowerServer enabled us to offer our customers a web-based workforce optimization product deployed to the Microsoft Azure Cloud.”

Tony Orsini, Senior Director

PowerServer Web App Architecture

PowerServer deploys your PowerBuilder apps to a standard n-tier Web architecture and a .NET server. The presentation tier and data tier are physically separated. The Web and application servers can be separated onto multiple servers and clustered. You can take advantage of numerous security mechanisms, including HTTPS protocol, firewall and Web server security. No matter how small or large your organization is, you will realize the benefits of greater availability, scalability, security, and reliability.
