On-Prem Cloud; that is your solution their cloud on your hardware, preferably in docker or similar container.
Isn't one of the primary benefits FileMaker Cloud that we're not responsible for the hardware? What is the remaining value proposition of FileMaker Cloud compared to FileMaker Server?
Running FileMaker on industrial grade machines. It would be like FileMaker server compiled for a server OS.
Apple does not have a server side OS; and if you consider the Windows platform an OS at all is up to you.
My point being server grade backups, up to 6TB of RAM in a server; SLOG/ZIL, and in general better performance and stability. Not to mention the public cloud being brutally slow for certain client locations.
Not to mention your own level of security.
Even though your laziness brings you to appreciate a public cloud; a private cloud may or may not be a preference. Just like some people prefer their own toilet instead of a public one.
Cloud runs on Linux. Presently, Cloud is tied to AWS. It would be great to have a Cloud product that could be installed on any *nix base.
Especially for clients that requires to have their managment system "offline" and do not accept Windows or Mac as servers. I have a management system that runs on a separate network; in which I had to port to Angular/node/postgreSQL, but that could run on FileMaker just fine given a linux / unix server like they did on 5.5.
