Select the Data Source type - Individuals

Description

 

This topic is for individuals or for teams of three users or less that do not want to implement security.

 

To make choosing the data source type easier, we are presenting a set of concerns and the list of data sources that can serve in that context. If you have multiple concerns simply create the intersection of all sets to isolate a list of choices.

 

When choosing any data source type that is not on-premises, you need to think of the safety of the data at rest and during transport. we strongly recommend that you further encrypt your data by applying a Master key for file-based solutions, or a Security Provider for Advanced Data Sources. This will ensure that the data will be unreadable by no one but you.

Notes

 

Note 1

There is absolutely no protection in the case of data contention issues. The last one writing to the file will win!  This is for single users with multiple computers, not for multiple users using the data concurrently.

 

Note 2

The master xml is maintained by a single user and synchronized to a web site that is hosted as per your requirements.  Accessing the data through a URL ensures it is read-only for other users.
