FileMaker Hosting with Productive Computing, Inc.

(soft jingle) – [Narrator] Introducing
FileMaker Hosting, the best way to ensure that your solution is always accessible, and secure. Why should you host
your FileMaker solution? Hosting your solution
allows you to have access to your data no matter where you are. Using FileMaker Server you can work in the office, from home, or on the road. With FileMaker desktop, web direct and go you can connect to your solution from your computer, the web, or your iPhone or iPad. Hosting your files
allows you create backups in the event of a malfunction you can always ensure that
you won’t lose your data. FileMaker Server licensing
gives you the flexibility to host your file yourself or use a third-party hosting company. Hosting your solution
with a third-party company reduces your IT infrastructure cost. You don’t need to worry
about how much RAM, processor and hardware you need, nor fuss with brand
and platform decisions. Hosting with a third-party
saves you the cost associated with purchasing, installing and configuring your own server. As well as maintaining
the server for things like OS updates and security patches. Backups are a huge benefit of hosting but they don’t happen magically. It takes time and effort
on a regular basis. Hosting with a third-party ensures that your backups will
be regularly scheduled and always secure. There are a lot of hosting
companies out there but your data is important. So make sure you choose
a reliable, credible and affordable partner. Here at PCI we use state
of the art data centers with the fastest throughput
speeds available, which tend to be much better than what a company could purchase on it’s own for a reasonable cost. If you choose to host
