Planning an FME Server Installation
When you acquire FME Server, you must decide how to deploy it on your system. There are a number of considerations:
- Choosing a Deployment Architecture: Learn about your options for how to deploy FME Server, either as a stand-alone system, or distributed on your network.
- Planning for Security Updates: Understand how security updates on FME Server-related components may affect how you decide to deploy FME Server.
- Planning for Scalability and Performance: Following installation, you can scale up your FME Server by increasing job throughput and optimizing job performance. These are measures you can take anytime after you install. Although they may not affect your initial planning, it's important to understand your options both up front, and going forward as you work with FME Server.
