An overview of FileMaker Server

Posted by John Mathewson on November 30, 2015

FileMaker Server is a fast and reliable server software that can be used to securely share information with groups of people, through either FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Go. This can extend solutions to the web through various FileMaker clients. Using concurrent FileMaker connections can provide centralized access to the secure data, particularly through FileMaker WebDirect.

Here are a few important things to know about the FileMaker Server:

  • Complete reliability: Users are allowed anytime access to their secure data through FileMaker Server. Users can also protect their data with scheduled backups throughout the day, which can run even when the solutions are in use. No matter what time of day it is, users can see and adjust their FileMaker solutions on a secure network as they see fit.
  • Quick installation: Most installations of the FileMaker Server take less than 20 minutes from start to finish. This makes it easy for users to instantly begin managing their solutions remotely and automating any administrative tasks. No longer will you have to deal with long installation times that can lead to intense frustration very quickly.
  • Robust scalability: FileMaker Server allows people to manager groups of FileMaker users with reliable security and network performance. There is no restriction on the number of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go clients that can be on a single network. Technical limitations are placed solely on your own hardware, solution design and operation system.
