 FMP Unlimited WITHOUT FMP Server
Folks,

I am a bit confused about the requirements of Unlimited. What is the
performance limitation if I serve files over the company Intranet without
using FMP Server?

thanks,

If you want to also have fmpro clients then you should get a server.

If you outgrow the performance limitation of one fm-unlimited web server and
want to start splitting the load between multiple machines running
unlimited, then you need a server (but only if the database is read/write...
if its read only... then you don't).

Thanks.
Any opinion on how Unlimited using just FMP will perform with about 50 users
with, say, rarely more than 5-8 being concurrent (dbms would be read/write)?

If you mean over the Intranet, using a web browser, FM Unlimited
should be fine. If you are going to have more than 1 or 2
people connecting FM -> FM, then I'd get Server as well.

But Server is not required just for web serving purposes.

Why is that? Is there a significant slowdown of FM -> FM clients
without using Server? I'm considering something similar to the other
poster (using regular FMPro - not Unlimited - but connecting up to 10
FM -> FM clients at a time).

If you are *only* doing FM -> FM, then performance would be
acceptable in most circumstances (dependant on the amount of
usage from each connection) - when you start adding web requests
into the equation, the situation becomes a lot muddier.

I had a lot of problems with 4.1 running as both a web
machine and peer-to-peer - in 5.0 you can really seperate
these functions, so I do.

YMMV

Yes.  Server is quite a bit quicker and much better at maintaining a
reasonable level of performance as the number of clients grows.  Plus it
has a bunch of management services (e.g., hot backups) that you'll never
encounter without server.
