San Diego, CA – October 18, 2018 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker® Business Alliance, is proud to announce the release of Cloud Manipulator.

 

This AWS FileMaker plug-in connects your FileMaker app to Amazon Web Services S3. The Cloud Manipulator allows the user to upload, download, query info, and move buckets and objects in AWS S3 (Simple Storage Service).

 

As a company, we’ve been using AWS in an increased capacity over the past few years for hosting, testing, and automated backup routines. We also have several hosting customers with advanced needs who use S3 for their document/file storage and are able to gain all the benefits that go along with S3. Our new plug-in makes working with files on S3 much easier and far more available to provide automated workflows for end-users without the FileMaker developer having to learn advanced programming languages or master the sophisticated S3 API.

 

"In my experience, I’ve found S3 storage to be arguably one of the most durable, flexible, and infinitely expandable storage technologies available. With the Cloud Manipulator plug-in for FileMaker, the world of S3 becomes more readily accessible for our FileMaker customers looking to have a world-class storage option at their fingertips.” Marc Larochelle, Chief Executive Officer, Productive Computing, Inc.

 

The Cloud Manipulator Plug-in:

  • Allows communication with Amazon Web Services S3 buckets, objects, and properties
  • Enables FileMaker to upload and download object/files from AWS S3
  • Manages buckets and folders
  • Pulls object details such as when last modified, size, owner name, and storage class
  • Creates, copies, moves, and deletes objects on AWS from FileMaker
  • Uploads objects to standard AWS storage class and downloads objects from any storage class

 

The plug-in comes complete with developer tools including a Functions Guide with full function details and available bucket and object fields, a Developer’s Guide with detailed information and example scripting, and an unlocked demo file to exhibit all of the main features of the plug-in.


The Cloud Manipulator plug-in is compatible with FileMaker client 15-17 and is available starting at $50 per year for a single user license.
