Connecting to a Pro Cloud Server provides a number of key benefits, including but not limited to:

1. The Pro Cloud Server provides benefits to connections that have high latency and reduced data transfer speeds.
2. The Pro Cloud server can be configured to connect to the required database by the administrator. Users then use the Enterprise Architect client to connect to the model or through the WebEA interface.
3. The Pro Cloud Server can be run from inside the corporate firewall. All model connections are created using HTTP/S, allowing firewalls to completely isolate your database server.
4. A Pro Cloud Server can be configured to encrypt all communication. Using standard TLS/SSL protocols, you can be confident that your data is not intercepted during transmission on insecure networks.
5. A Pro Cloud Server can be configured to provide HTTP-level authorization to any model taken directly from the model user list. Even when the model is exposed on a public network, you can be assured that only authorized users are able to access your model.
6. A Pro Cloud Server can be configured to provide read-only access to any model; for example, read-only access for clients required to review a model.

The Sparx Systems Key Store server has been available for many years, providing users of Enterprise Architect with the ability to manage their floating licenses. Up until version 2.1 of Pro Cloud Server, Floating License functionality was only offered as an independent Microsoft Windows service. Now it is integrated with the Pro Cloud Server, and users only have to install, configure and maintain one Microsoft Windows Service for all their Enterprise Architect needs.

For more information, please refer to the Enterprise Architect User Guide topic on Floating license Server Connections:

The 'Visibility Levels' feature made available using Pro Cloud Server provides the ability to restrict access by database user to certain sections of a model. The database ensures that users can only view and update data they are authorized to access. Working in conjunction with Enterprise Architect's model security, the Visibility Level feature provides up to 20 'levels' of security via a selection of base scripts, or customized according to requirements of the project.
