Hi guys,

I wonder if someone can help me on this non-technical question: I am a bit new to database and up until today my projects were running on a network so I used MS database with the ODBC connectivity. My client got bigger and he wants to have access to the database from different places in the world. I don't want to install a new server with Oracle (cause I think it will get too expensive) and I wonder if there are some companies who actually 'rent' database 'space' (like monthly payment for their service).

Thanks
GWB

Peter,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

Yes, companies rent database space. I'm not sure if anyone does Oracle, but I know mySQL and Access are available. This google search shows some vendors. They key word to search for is hosting.
