What technologies should be used for a desktop application on remote buildings? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am used to .net development. I plan to make a WPF application, with an SQL database, ideally with a small public web part and a part in Xamarin.

    It must therefore be able to transit via the Internet while remaining private, but not always.
    Take a dedicated server? An Azure space? A virtualized application?

    I don't have any server at the moment.

    Thanks for your advices :-)

  • Hi Yodabis,
    Based on your description, it is mostly related to WPF. So it is recommended to ask the questions in Microsoft Q&A forum and you can get more professional answer.
    Thank you for your understanding.
    Best Regards,

  • Your question is very vague and I think that it is not a WPF question at all.

    I do not understand the relevance of a small public web part and a part in Xamarin.

    My guess is that you are either describing use of an intranet or use of a distributed database.

    An intranet is exactly the same as the internet except an intranet is limited to a specific network. In other words, it would only be used within a company's network. You will have a client application and a server application.

    SQL Server supports distributed databases. You could have SQL Server executing in both systems. I am not sure how that works and it likely is not relevant to your requirements.
