Hyperspace is a technology - unique to Panacea - that enables you to set up terminals that can access your database remotely.  These terminals can be located on your own network (wired LAN or wifi) or they can be located anywhere in the world, as long as they have an internet connection.

Hyperspace gives you many of the benefits of "cloud" computing, yet retains the power and speed of "local" installations.  So you can access your Panacea database from home, a coffee shop or even the beach!

Connections made using Hyperspace have the following advantages over traditional connections:

  • Security - Hyperspace uses Rijndael encryption, making it impossible for anybody to intercept and read the content of the connection.  This means you can access your server safely even if you are connected to public wifi (e.g. coffee shop).  Rijndael (symmetric) encryption is exponentially more secure than asymmetric encryption which is used for secure websites such as banking.
  • Compression - Data passing between your server and terminal is compressed to speed up transmission.  It also reduces your internet data usage which is important if you have a "capped" internet connection.
  • Network Discovery - No technical knowledge is needed to set up a terminal.  Hyperspace is able to link your terminal and server automatically with only a PIN and password.  Previously you would have to configure your server with a fixed IP address, then configure terminals accordingly.
  • Remote access - Hyperspace can find and connect to your server from anywhere on the internet, as long as both the server and the terminal have internet access.  To achieve this previously required a VPN and involved a lot of complicated configuration (e.g. firewalls, dynamic DNS etc).
  • Connection Management - Hyperspace monitors your connection to the server and reconnects if the connection is lost.  Panacea is aware of the connection status, so it avoids trying to use the connection while it is down.
