Corporate Database Linking



I’m new to Cloud9 and using Ruby on Rails, and I was wondering if it is possible to connect back to a corporate database (SQL Server) and in what fashion. Ultimately my organization is not ready to have the databases in the cloud. I’d like to use a corporate database and mimic Active Directory security.

Thanks for any help on the subject.



Hey, welcome!

Realistically you would need to have some kind of access from your workspace to your database, there is a list of IPs here that your workspace would potentially use to access resources (this list is updated whenever we add/remove hosts and IPs).

I wouldn’t recommend that however, as it would be open to the public internet and explicitly for any Cloud9 users which would be a bad security practice.
