    I was doing some experiments with load-balancing 2 FMCloud instances, in order to get around the 100-user limits.  It worked (w/o https), but not consistently or well..

    Load-Balanced FileMaker Cloud with WebDirect

     

    Suggestion is to utilize AWS load-balancing a couple ways:

    * For FMCloud to leverage AWS load-balancing to load-balance WebDirect/FMGo/Pro across multiple instances. 

    * For FMCloud (and licensing costs) to enable AWS load-balancing against multiple FMCloud Server instances- for failover purposes or to increase the 100-user limit.
