World Class Cloud Services for FileMaker®

our-alliances World Class Cloud Services ~ from $89.00 +gst per month.

We provide FileMaker Solutions hosting from our dedicated Servers running FileMaker Server. These are located at the world class Global Switch Data Centre in Ultimo and AWS (Amazon Web Services) Sydney.

Global Switch and AWS offer high quality, scalable data centre solutions with access to multiple carriers. The facilities resilience is underpinned by a minimum N+1 standard for power and cooling systems, delivering an optimal operating environment to clients 24×7.

All of our servers provide secure access and are configured with SSL AES 256-bit encryption (Server to Web-pages and Server to Clients – FileMaker Pro/Filemaker Go) and have current, valid 3rd Party certificates. FileMaker now offers the ability to configure files to be encrypted “at rest” – meaning the files can also be secured on the local machines or mobile devices.

As one of our valued hosting clients, you’ll be able to leverage the infrastructure we already have in place, and take advantage of the benefits of “cloud computing”.

Simple. To save time and money. One of the easiest ways to save time and money these days is to take your FileMaker System and push it to the cloud. Not iCloud, our Cloud.

We are a dedicated professional FileMaker Cloud Services Company and we’re here to help. Instead of managing your machines, drives, and networks to access and share data with your team, you can have it all done offsite with us. More specifically your system would be residing on one of our dedicated FileMaker Servers which itself is a rack unit housed in a secure cabinet, along with many other cabinets that are housed within a secure cage, on a secure floor within a world-class secure building – namely Amazon Web Services Data Centres and the Global Switch in Sydney. In one fell swoop, you’ll avoid having to buy servers, manage servers, upgrade software, and worry about security and backups (you make backups, right?).

Not at all! Hosting with us offers benefits to everyone – large teams, small teams, and even teams of one. Putting your data in a professionally managed, secure, and up-to-date environment that is accessible from any device, anywhere, is a game-changer. One way many of our clients have been saving money and aggravation lately is to take their FileMaker solutions online too.

Absolutely! Our rates vary, but basically, having a single file FileMaker solution hosted with us will cost less than a cup of coffee per day. Our online uptime is extremely reliable, speed is as good as it gets, and of course, your files will be accessible from anywhere in the world.

Very. Data tends to be sensitive, so it is of the utmost importance for us to keep all of our servers secure. It is also in our interest to do so since it’s our reputation is at stake. All of our servers provide secure access and are configured with AES 256-bit encryption including data at rest and database password protection. Furthermore, data is encrypted in transit using current SSL Certificates and TLS 1.2 and above cryptographic protocols keeping data being transferred across the network more secure.

Our Amazon Web Services supplier has security, compliance and governance at the top of its priorities. It has ISO certifications for information security management (ISO/IEC 27001) and personal data in the cloud (ISO/IEC 27018). Claris (FileMaker On-Premise Server) also adheres to Apple’s rigorous policies and procedures to ensure your data is safe and remains private – including complying with SOC 2® Type 2 auditing and reporting for security, availability, and confidentiality of Claris services.

Our Cloud Services use AWS key management for encrypted passwords and authentication via Active Directory, Open Directory or OAuth 2.0 identity providers is also available if required, along with multi-factor authentication (MFA) and passwordless authentication.

So, to recap. If you need to share your FileMaker database with anyone, think twice about trying to host it yourself. Your best bet is to outsource this to someone who can do it better and cheaper than you. Fewer costs, and certainly less headache.

First up, you can benefit from massive economies of scale and achieve lower variable costs than you can source on your own. This translates into lower pay as you go prices. Instead of investing heavily in computer hardware and Servers (capital expense), you only pay for how much you consume (operational expense).

Cloud Computing lets you focus on your own customers rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking and powering servers; updating and patching operating system and application software; managing hardware and software firewall policies; verification and validation of backup schedules; monitoring database and client (users) activity and more… This allows you to focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure.

Without question, knowing that you have a “set and forget” partner managing this critical piece of core infrastructure within a world-class FM Server environment – is priceless.

Providing Managed Services to small & medium-sized businesses with limited IT budgets, assume responsibility for your Systems & Server Environment intended to maintain continuity of service, improve operations & cut your costs. This may include but is not limited to: monitoring & tracking Server performance; updating operating system and application software security updates; scheduling, verification & validation of all Server backups and; providing you with ‘Peace of Mind’.
