With the rise of the internet, the popularity of desktop applications has decreased and the use of servers has increased. Both of these components can play a vital role in the productivity of a business and are therefore essential. With our help, creating a server or desktop application has never been easier.
Below are the following services we provide in order to configure your dream server or create stunning desktop applications.
Although the usage of desktop applications has become less popular because of the internet, they are still useful for businesses to have. By definition, a desktop application is an application that runs stand-alone in a desktop or laptop computer. Desktop applications are completely customized to the user which gives users more control of their own computer and can be run independent of the internet.
As an example think of the Microsoft Office Suite which offers a desktop application and an online version that can be used in the browser. The Microsoft Office program Word can be downloaded as a desktop application which can be configured to a specific user and be used without the internet. In contrast, the online version must be run in a browser with an internet connection in order to even load a blank word document. Give your company and employees the opportunity to be more efficient by using a desktop application. Let us help you design a desktop application to fit your users and your needs today!
Choosing the right kind of server software depends on what you are trying to create. Server software is a type of software designed to be used, operated, and managed on a computing server. These programs exist to interact with a server’s hardware including the processor, memory, storage, input/output, and communication ports. Typically, a server will wait for requests from other applications and respond to them.
There are many different kinds of servers as described below. Our expert software developers can help to guide you in the right direction of choosing which server you want.
Web Servers are dedicated to running HTTP requests for their web clients. Websites must use at least one web server in order to share their information with the user. To work, a web server stores a website’s component files and because it is connected to the internet, it exchanges its website component files with other devices connected to the web.
An application server is a mixed software framework that provides functionality to create web applications and a server environment to run them in. Application servers are similar to web servers but are not limited to HTTP requests. These servers also implement services like clustering, fail-over, and load-balancing.
Database servers provide an organized, data management system to computer programs. A database server can be accessed through the front-end of a user’s computer to display requested data, but is more commonly accessed through the back-end which runs on the server to handle data analysis, storage, data manipulation, and archiving.
File server software is software to install a server to store your files locally on your machine. These servers are typically found in schools and offices for users to log on to a computer to do work and save it to their filesystem. The file server is a centralized place to store files that can be configured to show specific files to specific users with access rights.
After creating any desktop application, it is essential to have some way to install the application on any computer. Creating a custom installer is not difficult and will be specific to your application. Installing an application can be done online through a download or without internet through the CD drive. Typically, an installer includes automatically moving files to run the program, new directories, environment variables, and a way to uninstall the program.
Converting a Website into a Desktop Application
Different companies have different needs but if you have a website you frequent often and you’re tired of pulling up a new browser each time, you have the option to turn it into a desktop application. Some websites have existing desktop applications that are expensive or are not compatible with your operating system. Let us help you! Turning a website into a desktop app isn’t as hard as it seems.
Not everyone has the same type of computer with the same version of the same operating system. There are many different hardware architectures such as x86 or x64 along with many different software platforms including Linux, Windows, MacOS, Android, or Java. While coding, we’ll future-proof your application to ensure it will continue to run on any hardware architectures with any supported software platform according to your specifications. A good application is one that has cross-platform support.
