External DB options

We have been using Control since 2010 (Screen Connect, back then).

As we continue to add Access Sessions, our database is getting huge, despite nightly maintenance. We moved our DB to an Intel Optane NVME, and is still goes out to lunch for 25 minutes during DB maintenance, or a service restart.

Are there any plans to allow for moving the Database to an external DB engine? We would love to see you guys support MongoDB.


There is unofficial support for MS SQL which we're currently running on. You have to edit the web.config file and setup the database.

<add name="SessionDatabase" connectionString="Data Source=<server name>\<instance>;Initial Catalog=<database name>;User Id=<username>;Password=<password>;Persist Security Info=False" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
