Release 4.5

Tally.Server 9, a new product which can be installed in the server machine and run as a service, has been developed by Tally to provide an unparalleled usability experience for secure and concurrent data access in your multi user environment. It is an extremely simple-to-deploy product which also provides advanced monitoring and administrative control:

Performing operations in a friction-less environment: Multiple users will be able to simultaneously load companies, save transactions, export reports, print reports, import data, take backup and perform other data related activities without experiencing any downtime or wait state.

Keeping the data file safely invisible and providing controlled access: The data files will be managed through Tally.Server 9. The location or path for the data on the server need not be disclosed or made accessible to any user. The clients just require the name of the data server, which will be enough to access and operate Tally.ERP 9. Furthermore, operations for company data management, namely Backup, Restore, Rewrite, Create Company, and Split Company, are also controlled with server level permissions.

Analysing system usage and user activities to optimise the various processes and time spent on them: Since the access is controlled through Tally.Server 9, the authorised users will be able to monitor who is currently logged in, which companies are open, track the activities and even disconnect users if such a requirement arises.

Minimising instances of system unavailability: Availability of the system is important for any business. With Tally.Server 9, data backup can be taken anytime without affecting either the speed of access for users or the reliability of data that is backed up. In other words, users can continue recording transactions or generating reports while the backup is happening – There is zero downtime for backup.

Currently in a multi user environment, database for Tally.ERP 9 Series A is shared with users via the Windows Shared service. This process has its own limitations with regard to data security, performance, and speed during concurrent usage by multiple users.

Benefits for the Business

More than 100 client machines can access data at a time.

Multiple users can concurrently read (e.g. view reports) and write (e.g. record transactions) data.

Administrators can have control over who accesses the data on the server; permissions provided will be user-specific.
