More Information:
With FileMaker Cloud, you’re now able to easily share information with your team. FileMaker Cloud provides secure, reliable access to your custom apps using FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go and FileMaker WebDirect all without the administrative hassle.

FileMaker Cloud runs on the Amazon Web Services Cloud and is offered through AWS Marketplace. This means there are a few different phases to the initial setup. Because purchasing AWS and FileMaker Cloud can feel a little complicated, this lesson will walk you through the setup process, step by step.

Before you begin, you should have an Amazon Web Services account. Note that this is different from the account you may use to browse and shop on as a consumer. If you don’t already have an AWS account, visit for more information.

Once you have your account, you can go to the AWS Marketplace and follow this lesson to:

** Choose and purchase an AWS server (an “EC2 instance”)
** Choose and purchase FileMaker Cloud
** Activate your FileMaker Cloud instance
