On-Premise FileMaker Server
An on-premise FileMaker Server provides an ideal solution for organizations that prefer a more hands-on approach than the FileMaker Cloud offers. FileMaker Server enables you to host your custom FileMaker solution on site, so your organization will either need to use existing server resources or invest in server-class hardware. Fortunately, FileMaker Server supports multiple operating systems and virtual environments, so most mature IT infrastructures have no trouble accommodating it’s moderate system requirements.
While adding or deploying server resources may extend the deployment timeline required to install and configure hardware, and will require a plan for an ongoing system, you’ll have significantly more control–and responsibility–over server management and resource utilization.
