Custom Installation of FME Server
The recommended installation option for FME Server is either Express or Distributed. If you need to perform a custom installation of FME Server, then you can learn more about the recommended web application servers, databases, and more in the FME Server Recommended Installation Scenarios.
Recommended Hardware Requirements
Pentium® 4, AMD Opteron or newer with 8GB or more of RAM and 20GB of available disk space. While FME products can operate on legacy hardware, additional memory, faster CPU and disk will significantly improve processing time.
You can easily scale FME Server's processing power by purchasing additional FME Engine licenses. For optimal performance, we recommend that each engine have a dedicated core. If you want to deploy FME Server without the constraints of hardware, learn more about FME Cloud.
Please note that in languages other than English, not all product components have been translated. In addition, non-English versions may have later release dates. The release dates and scope of translation varies based upon the provider – please contact them directly for full details.
