Wanted to let you know there might be a typo in this sentence:
"With FileMaker Cloud in the offing, we decided to move our development environment to AWS and have not looked back."
Think you might have meant "offering".
Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
Does anyone recommend a comprehensive guide to configuring a FileMaker Server on AWS? Ideally something suitable for someone that has minimal Windows knowledge!
- Take advantage of S3 for offsite backups, I have had EC2 hardware fail a few times (only once was bad for data)
- I didn't notice a mention of a fixed IP address, use an Elastic IP to have a fixed IP address
Yes, we are using Elastic IP for the reasons Carl mentioned. Very helpful if you turn instances on and off.
