No Published Hardware Requirements for FM Cloud.

This is causing confusion as FM Cloud was demoed with hardware that is less than the Win/macOS requirements.

System Requirements for FileMaker Server 15 | FileMaker

 

The free trial runs on a single vCPU with less than 80GB storage and there is the odd CPU credit system with AWS. There is a lot of difficulty selecting hardware for the solution in use. I really feel this is a serious lack of info on the product and there should be some recommended hardware for FM Cloud or at least a single published comparable setup for hardware equal to the Win/macOS requirements.

 

One of the main reasons I am not really sending any production databases to FM Cloud already. I cannot really be sure if a client will have under or over provisioned hardware. Yes I think it is a product issue.
