Mastering Claris & FileMaker Server – Learn best practices for hosting your own FileMaker files

Did you see our course, Mastering Claris & FileMaker Server? Productive Computing University revamped its Claris & FileMaker SSL course to address much more than installing SSL certificates in Claris & FileMaker Server.

Installing SSL certificates on FileMaker Server was no picnic back in the day, and thanks to recent updates, a 2-3 hour course solely providing instructions on SSL certificates may no longer be necessary. Now that it’s easier to install SSLs with both Claris Server and FileMaker Server, PCU updated the course with an expanded list of offerings that includes server training and best practices.

What are Claris Server & FileMaker Server?

Most businesses need to share data with a team of people and be able to access the data from anywhere - in the office, at home, or on the road. Without Claris Server or FileMaker Server, you wouldn’t be able to host your files and share them with your team or the world. It’s the essential glue that connects your systems to your users. Some businesses choose to hire a Claris or FileMaker hosting company, while others choose to host their file internally using an “on-premise” server.

As you can imagine, setting up Claris Server or FileMaker Server correctly on your own server hardware is incredibly important. Any disruptions, downtime, or data loss could be catastrophic to your business.
