Working with FME Server
Note: You must have an FME Server configured with your system in order to take advantage of its features and benefits. Contact Safe Software for details.
FME Server is a networked data transformation application that uses the same underlying technology as FME Desktop. It can operate on a local-area network or over the Internet.
FME Server has the following advantages:
- Desktop users can share translation resources through a repository mechanism.
- Desktop users can run resource intensive translations on a dedicated server.
- Non-FME users can run translations on demand.
- Translation output can be streamed directly to a chosen spatial application.
FME Server allows users to easily share spatial data. It is scalable, so it can easily grow as demands on the system increase.
FME Server is also a Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) meaning it processes data using predefined workflows. These workflows are defined using FME Desktop, making it simple to convert a desktop process to one usable by a client anywhere.
