Hello FM Community,


is there another link for the FileMaker Server 17 recommended specifications for hardware? The Technical Specifications | FileMaker Server 17 doesn't mention anything specific about SSD or HDD or minimum disk I/O?


Hardware requirements


A dedicated computer is recommended for FileMaker Server.

Minimum RequirementsRecommended Requirements
CPU: Dual Core
Hard Drive: 80 GB or more, depending on file size
CPU: 4-Core
Hard Drive: 80 GB or more, depending on file size
Operating system drive requirements

FileMaker Server uses the operating system drive to provide temporary storage for progressive downloading, uploading and downloading apps, log files, and cache storage used by components such as the Web Server.

To maintain an optimal operating environment, FileMaker Server requires 80 GB or more of storage on the operating system drive even if apps are hosted on or backed up to another drive. The server administrator must monitor the operating system drive to make sure that enough storage is available.
