Replacement Product: Magellan Server

eServer is a web-based Magellan Explorer solution that allows remote PCs to display a Magellan Explorer interface from within their web browser, while accessing information on a remote PC.

In conjunction with a client-side downloaded ActiveX control plug-in, eServer allows remote clients using a web browser to download and display frames of a Magellan project through a network or internet connection without needing a local copy of that project.

eServer is bundled with the MagellanX ActiveX control required for download onto a client web browser, and offers the following advantages over the Magellan Explorer program:

  • Users do not need to have a licence for Magellan Explorer on their PC – they simply log on to a web site which automatically downloads the MagellanX ActiveX control and starts a session with a remote eServer
  • Only one copy of the Magellan project file (.mag) needs to be stored and maintained on the server
  • All audit logging is carried out on the server PC giving a centralised audit trail repository
  • The interface presented with MagellanX is no different to using the Magellan Explorer program itself
  • Updates to the master project file are automatically recognised by the clients next time they connect to eServer
  • Protected with a security key and shipped standard with support for 5 concurrent connections over a network or internet connection
  • Efficient interaction between client and server ensures only the required components of the Magellan project are transferred to the client
  • Client-side caching ensures that graphical images are only transferred if they have not previously been accessed by the client
  • Integrated support for Crystal Reports
  • Relational database support for Microsoft® SQL Server® 2016 R2 Express Edition, Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 Express Edition.
  • Display Historic Trend information via Innotech® Chronicle Server, with support for up to 100 SQL Server database connections in a project (not-concurrent)
