FileMaker Pro is the database engine that is required on each computer to run any of our FileMaker databases in multi-user mode. If you require more than 2 database users on the network, the FileMaker Server application will need to be installed on a server to host the FileMaker database system. FileMaker Server increases network speed and improves data protection, as well as a number of other advantages, such as scheduling backups during the day.
FileMaker Server software
FileMaker Server can run on either a Windows or Mac OSX server.
FileMaker Pro software
FileMaker Pro is installed on each user's (Mac or PC) computer to access the database as a guest of FileMaker Server.
