The End is Nigh (again) for Internet Explorer 11!

Posted by: Gino Tags: Posted date:

I find it difficult to believe that any of the readers of this Newsletter have not enabled Edge IE Mode already but, just in case, the latest word from Microsoft is that the Internet Explorer 11 desktop app will be permanently disabled on certain versions of Windows 10 as part of the February 2023 Windows security update scheduled for Feb. 14, 2023. So, that’s that for “Classic IE” for most everyone (Edge IE Mode’s Lifecycle is said to be at least until 2029, so legacy application users fear not). Of course, all of Browsium’s software is compatible with Edge IE Mode.

Moving to the Cloud?

Several of our customers have migrated to the cloud for the BCMS (Browsium Client Management Server) Below are a few of the questions that have been asked, with our replies in Italic.

What versions of Windows Server are supported for the management server and the database?
Server 2008 R2 or greater (or the minimum OS requirement of the version of SQL Server you are using, 2017+).
What are the versions of SQL server supported?
SQL Server 2017 or newer.
Does Browsium support hosting the database in Azure SQL?
Does the app need to run any Distributed Transactions against the databases?
Does the app need to run any Cross-Database Joins against multiple databases?
Any need for database Replication (Snapshot/Transactional/Log Shipping etc.)? (If yes, please indicate whether Publisher/Subscriber)
Any need to use Database Mail?
Any need to use SQL Job Monitor?

Is a non-UTC Time Zone timestamp required?
Do you use any Distributed Partition Views?
Any need to use Filegroups other than ‘PRIMARY’?
Does the app support the use of Windows Auth when connecting to the databases?
Is the app a “Java-based app hosted on a Unix/Linux/PCF system”?
Is the app ok with using one of our standard Maintenance Windows?
What is the initial size requirement for the database?
The BCMS installer will provide its own database which starts out empty and will grow as more users connect and seat reservation information is populated. Under 1GB most certainly.
What is the Max Size that the database is expected to grow to?
Current DB size + a % for additional seats.

If you have any additional questions or require assistance with a migration, you know where to find us ([email protected])!
