Dedicated FM Hosting (VM)

HostFileMaker VPS systems utilise Microsoft's Hyper-V virtualisation software to provide a truly professional hosting system for your FileMaker databases.

FileMaker Virtual Private Server 15

Dedicated Virtual Machine(s), hosting a fully licensed dedicated copy of FileMaker Server 15 with full access to admin console. FileMaker Server 15 is only available as a dedicated Virtual Private Server – it is not available on shared hosting. Shared Hosting is still currently available on FileMaker Server 14 Shared Hosting.

FileMaker Server 15 uses a new licensing scheme: FileMaker Licensing for Teams (FLT). This scheme covers both server license and user connections. The license is based on the total number of users who require access to the FileMaker Server, and comes in packs of 5.

Please note that FLT is not based on concurrent connections, but rather the total number of individuals who will require access to FileMaker Server, regardless of when they will access the server.

If you have 8 users that require access to FileMaker Server 15, and only 4 users will require access at the same time – you will require a File Maker Server 15 with up-to 10 users FLT license.

This is because you need to license all 8 users (even if only 4 use File Maker at the same time) and the license comes in packs to 5, so the minimum required license is the ‘up-to 10 FLT’ license.

The FileMaker Licensing for Teams (FLT) covers licensing for connections via:

  • - FileMaker Pro 15 (for User Connections)*
  • - FileMaker Go
  • - FileMaker WebDirect

*FileMaker Pro 15 (for User Connections) has exactly the same feature set as FileMaker Pro 15. This includes peer-to-peer, authoring, and opening local files. However, FileMaker Pro 15 (for User Connections) must be connected to FileMaker Server 15 at all times. It cannot be used offline.

Please note that each user may use only one client at a time.

The following FileMaker Pro clients are also compatible with FileMaker Server 15:

FileMaker Pro 15, 14, and 13.0.9

FileMaker Pro Advanced can connect to a FileMaker Server licenced with FileMaker Licensing for Teams and will not count as a user connection. FileMaker Pro Advanced is purchased directly from FileMaker.
