You can now build and run apps in FileMaker Cloud

FileMaker, Inc. has released its cloud-based platform for managing and running custom apps, FileMaker Cloud. The offering provides the simplicity, performance and reliability of the FileMaker Platform without having to spend time and resources deploying and maintaining a server.

FileMaker enables businesses, both small and large, to quickly and easily deploy custom mobile apps that save time and money while creating efficiencies and better customer experiences. The company supports business transformation with innovative offerings such as the Idea to iPad Bundle and the free Service Business Toolkit.

Features of FileMaker Cloud include:

- Speedy deployment: No need to set up hardware and install software

- Network security: Supports industry standard SSL/TLS level encryption; comes with a 90-day trial SSL certificate.

- FileMaker Cloud Admin Console: Provides a dashboard view of system and custom app performance with a user-friendly design.

- Separate data/configuration set up: Developers’ FileMaker files are separated from their instance of FileMaker Cloud so that software upgrades, maintenance and service restart can be completed more quickly and easily.
FileMaker Cloud is currently only available in the United States and Canada.
