We need to provide customer demos very easily of our QS apps. We have the demos as QFV files (pseudonymized as required) including both the app and data.
Qlik Sense Cloud could be the solution but app size limitation may be a problem:
- some of the demos are larger than 50MB apps, or at least sum of the apps is far above that
- the demos include both application and data in QVF file
- re-engineering to exclude data would require extra work (to figure out what data formats are supported, make exports (and maintain those in case of updates) I guess native MS SQL Server is not supported inside Qlik Sense Cloud)
So, what is actually this "Storage"? Or is it ok out-of-the box to upload apps larger than 50MB and Cloud would extract the included data somwhoe automatically???
Installing and updating demos on Desktops is too inconvenient and you do not have Access to the demos unless you remembered to copy the latest versions of the demos required.
Of course yet another option would be to have an own server in DMZ or via VPN, but yet another node and licensing issue to maintain.
Basic question is the storage issue above, how is it?
Or other options for hosting demos?
Your apps can't be larger than 25 MB and the total of what you can store (apps + data files) can't be larger than 250MB. If your apps stay within those limits then you can upload them. If they don't then you can either upgrade to Cloud Plus or make your customers install Qlik Sense Desktop on a machine and provide them with your demo apps.
Thanks, so: "data storage" refers to QS data separately stored in FileName.qvd (QVD)?
If we process the demos such that QVF doesn't include data but it's stored (STORE...) in a separate file, then given that the apps (all total) < 25 MB and data all apps total under this cloud account <250MB, the solution works fine?
Yeah, if each individual file is smaller than 25MB and the total of all files is smaller than 250MB you should be fine.
Can someone point me towards a documentation on Qlik Sense Size principles are raised in this thread? We are setting up our Cloud Environment and I am looking at all the possible pitfalls and best practices we should be aware of hosting our Apps & Data on Qlik Sense cloud.

If you need more information then perhaps you should contact your Qlik or Qlik Partner account manager.
