Yes. DBGallery’s web software can be installed on web servers on-premise or in the cloud. Our Cloud Enterprise and Small Team offerings are DBGallery’s web server software being hosted on Amazon’s AWS. It may be hosted on your in-house or cloud server meeting the following basic requirements.
DBGallery Server Requirements:
This one-time fee is due to the effort required to customize the setup for each of our clients. There are configuration settings, logos to retrieve and place, possible help with data imports, aid in initial loading of images, etc. Again, it is only applicable to our Cloud Enterprise offering.
Absolutely. This is accomplished by simply having the port number which that particular web server instance uses not be available to the internet. Several of our clients do this to have a clean, modern and easy to use file management system completely internal to their organization. Setup generally takes only 30 to 60 minutes and easily utilizes existing file server and image folders.
Yes, for the Enterprise Plan (and the Server version, which is hosted on-premise). For the Enterprise plan the web server, files, backup and database can be fully hosted within any Amazon AWS region.
It is very safe. Beyond our primary cloud storage we backup all files twice, once in the same region as primary storage and another in a completely different geographical region.
Yes! Files are stored in the same folder structure shown within DBGallery and can be zipped for download at anytime. Smaller numbers of folders can be zipped via DBGallery itself, with larger numbers handled via a support request.
DBGallery doesn’t store image files in it’s database, they’re stored in drive folders. For the Server version that is installed in-house at your location, the size limit is dependent on the amount of disk space available on your file servers. For our cloud plans, the space limit is based on the about provided with the plan plus any add-on space you’ve signed up for.
In its database there are records for each image. Hence it’s the database storage limit which comes into play, and since we’re using MySQL as the database, the limit is very large. A number of factors determine the maximum number, but it should typically be in the millions. Those factors are primarily disk space and speed, processor and memory on the database server.
Internet speed is the biggest performance factor for DBGallery’s cloud plans, or for the Server version it’s either internal network (intranet) speed when users access the system internally or internet speed again for those accessing your DBGallery Server over the internet. The other major performance factor impacting customers with very large collections is the number of records in the database. That record count threshold is dependent on the processor, memory and disk speed of the computer where the database resides. For example, on a 2019 Xeon-processor server with 32 GB RAM and SSD drives, performance degrades as you head towards 2 or 3 million images. Typically clients have 100,000 or fewer images so database performance is not an issue, leaving internet or intranet connection speed as the largest performance factor.
Our Server version is called Plus Web. It is a web server plugin which opens your internal image collection to the web. To only those you specify, and only the areas your choose.
It is safe and exceptionally convenient; once a collection area is shared any updates are instantly instantly available to those it was originally shared with. Opening access to outside entities can significantly improve the value of your image collection.

Refers to the number of users which can log into the system. Any number of users may view shared images or those set as being publicly available.
Image viewing is a key aspect of any image management system. DBGallery's viewer is excellent, with many awesome features such as a dark theme, lower thumbs bar, data easily available via the Info tab, a slideshow mode, full screen with uncluttered thumbs only mode, and many more.
See our Image Viewer video on YouTube here (2 mins).
Display ALL the data available for an image. This includes Exif, IPTC, XMP, as well as custom fields and other data such number of views, date added to the database, and more. Overwhelming for some, but when needed this information is invaluable!
View image collections, folders, or search results across a map. This is a great feature when your company photo assets were shot all over the country. Click a marker for a popup of the image.
With more and more photos shot with phones or cameras with GPS coordinate capabilities, using maps to find and browse images is becoming more popular and useful.
Activity logging provides collection administrators visibility into data edits, asset additions and movements, and sharing activity. Understand what is happening within a collection can be critical for helping understand when inappropriate images are uploaded or shared, or when finding a root cause of collection errors.
The Dashboard provides an overview the collection. It includes overall stats as well as recent activity, which are live links to immediately return to. The 'widgets' that are shown are configurable via a drag and drop interface, allowing the setting of size and position within the dashboard.
Toggle self-registrations so users within or external to your organization can signup themselves. You choose the folders and actions they are may perform by setting up a default permissions role for new signups. Once they're in the system you may change those permissions, providing additional access.
Email images directly to DBGallery. The email import service will monitor any configured email Inbox and automatically import attached images into the DBGallery database and folder system. Each email sender may have images go to their own area of the database, or all email images may go to a single processing/approval area.
