Getting Better All The Time

  • By E. Gries, Aim High St. Louis

I work for a small nonprofit organization and have no formal experience or training with creating databases or hosting solutions. FileMaker Cloud had a 9 minute YouTube video that does a very good job walking the user through the initial set up process. FileMaker Cloud comes with a 90 day SSL certificate which is great, but I had a lot of trouble going through the process of getting a new one installed. I've spoken to the FileMaker Cloud team and they are now making it so the user can renew their SSL certificate from the console which is a very beneficial step. I'm also interested in connecting my database with Tableau, and while that is not currently an option, I'm told it will be very soon. I'm very happy with the product and how receptive FileMaker is to clients' needs.

Steady Incremental Improvements

As a consultant, this product meets most of my own business needs. As the product develops, it will answer all of my business needs. I think it's reasonable to expect this product to meet my advanced technical needs in the next 12 months or so (After this' review's posting).

For the average FileMaker customer, there's some technical savvy that's required to derive the best cost/benefit ratio from the AWS platform, but setting up an instance of FM Server in the Cloud (at standard instance pricing) is very easy, even for the average FileMaker customer.

This a solid 1.0 product offering. In the next 12 months, I can see this product meeting the needs of many of my clients at a very competitive price point.

A Great Way to Host FileMaker Solutions on the Cloud

  • By Chris Peterson, CEO PayGo POS

Our company has been wanting to offer our customizable FileMaker retail product on the cloud for many years. FileMaker Cloud has provided a great platform in which to do this.

It makes setting up a cloud server much easier than if we had to do it manually. It's quick and straightforward and because it's linux-based, it's very affordable compared to Windows-based instances.

We've also found the performance to be dependable and solid. The admin console is also very clean and easy to learn and use.

A great choice for many FileMaker systems

  • By Greg Lane, Skeleton Key

FileMaker Cloud has quickly become our first choice for offsite hosting for many of our clients. There are some limitations compared to FileMaker Server, like no scheduled scripts, limited access to backups, availability of plugins, no external authentication, and no CWP. However, for many of our clients, FileMaker Cloud is a great fit. We love how easy it is to set up and maintain as well as the ability to scale the instance size up or down to find the best balance of performance and price.

We prefer the BYOL version because it allows us to purchase the best license type and quantity for each client.

Performance and reliability have been great so far.

Piece of cake license migration

  • By Automation USA

Entirely web and email driven process to transfer your license, took less than 5 minutes to complete. Didn't have to dial any phone numbers or wait in queue. Smoothest, easiest, way to get up on running on FileMaker Cloud using your existing license.
