The Cardbox Server is free.

Multi-user / network

The Cardbox Server is a program which allows many Cardbox users to share the same database simultaneously, across a local area network or across the Internet.

Share live data in real time with other Cardbox users on your own network or across the Internet.

Encrypted communications with the Cardbox Server ensure that nobody can listen in to your Cardbox session.

Host your databases on your own network server, or on a workstation, or on a server in the Cloud.

Automatic backup of all databases on a schedule you decide: to a specified location on your system, or to the cloud-based Amazon S3 service.
