External Application connectivity to Cloud instances

We have a customer that is using SLX in the Cloud and posed a question to me yesterday about connecting an external application to the database.  I had never really given it much thought in the past, but are there any options for him?  SData would be an option, but not the direction he wants to go at this point.  I am not sure that using a normal connection string entry for the SalesLogix provider would be opened on the Cloud servers.  Other options?

Re: External Application connectivity to Cloud instances

A - Have a second server in the (SLX) cloud setup that runs a custom app.. it could then talk locally via the provider


B - Use SData.. by implementing TaskCentre (on premise or cloud) and using theTaskCentre Web Services Tool to "talk" w/SData - it works.
