What to know about FileMaker Server Transition Licensing

If you are planning to transition from FileMaker Server Advanced to the FileMaker Server 13, there is some (rather confusing) news.  The long and the short of it is, if you have FileMaker Server Transition, you can save money by renewing before 12/3/14 and locking in savings of 50%:

FileMaker has announced that they will be discontinuing FileMaker Server Transition (formerly FileMaker Server Advanced) on December 3, 2014, resulting in a price increase. If you have FileMaker Server Transition, it is because you had FileMaker Server Advanced. So you may be asking yourself, “Do I need to renew early so that I can lock in the savings?” There are different actions to take to answer this question and to find out what you need.

To begin with, FileMaker no longer makes Server Advanced as of FileMaker Server 13. The differences in Server’s are solely on the number of FileMaker Go and WebDirect Connections you need (Concurrent Connections). In the past, Server Advanced had extra features like more Instant Web Publishing Users, no sharing limits, and more CWP connections, but this is no longer the case.

Back to the question if you are needing to renew your FileMaker Server Transition, and the answer is simply the number of Concurrent Connections you need for FileMaker Go and WebDirect. FileMaker Server Transition includes 25 Concurrent Connections. If you find yourself not needing that many connections, then there is the next step of determining how many connections you need and what to do to get the correct licensing. If you need 25 Concurrent Connections for FileMaker Go and WebDirect, by all means, renew your licenses by December 3rd to save 50%!
