    database hosting solution on the cheap?

    bobinaustin

      I have a client that wants a database (just one) that can be hosted on a server or cloud storage and that it can accessed filemaker go on three iPads and on his mac.  I have looked into a few hosting services ranging in price from $20 a month to $350 a month.  I did some testing as well and storing it in iCloud and DropBox do not allow access to it from the iPads.  It appears to copy it to the iPad.  Can anyone offer a suggestion for hosting on the cheap?  The db doesn't need a web interface, it just needs to be hosted and then accessed via the iPads.  He is not wanting to host it on his mac because he wants backup and cloud based storage so he doesn't have to worry about backup.

       

      Thanks for the help.
