Helix Personal Server
What is it?

Helix Personal Server for macOS is a Helix Server licensed for unlimited access to a single user at a time.

It is comprised of two applications:

  • Helix Personal Server, used to host and serve your Helix Collection, and
  • Helix Personal Client, which is used to interact with the information in your Collection
Why Personal Server?

Every piece of information you enter into a Helix Collection is stored right inside that Collection. If you were to take the Collection with you wherever you went, on your laptop, for instance, it would only be as secure as your laptop. In other words, if your laptop were to disappear, so would all your current information.

That is not a secure scenario.

And that’s where the Helix Personal Server comes in. The Helix Server application opens and runs a Helix Collection from the location of your choice. That might be in your home or your office or any other location you deem to be safe and secure. Instead of taking it all with you wherever you may roam, you leave it running safely and visit your information from wherever you are using the other component of Helix Personal Server, Helix Client.

It works over the internet. This means that a Helix Personal Server user can access his or her Helix Collection from anywhere in the house or office to anywhere in the world. From the same machine where your Server is running to your laptop anywhere you take it.

That’s right, you read that correctly. You can even use the same machine that’s running your Collection to interact with it via Helix Client.

Helix Personal Server keeps all your information in one location while you move around, working on a laptop, a machine at work, while your information is stored at home.

Components include:

  • Helix Server
  • Helix Client
  • Helix Utility (A tool that helps assure the data integrity of your Helix collection.)
Pricing

Helix Personal Server is specially-priced at $149.99.

How it grows along with your needs
