  1. Processor cores are usually assigned on-demand, but RAM should definitely be statically (not dynamically) assigned. Dyanmically assigned RAM is a bad idea no matter what you're running on a VM server. - John
  2. We use 2009 Xserves here. 8 core Xeons with hyperthreading for 16 virtual cores, with up to 192GB RAM. Backended to Fibre Channel SANs. Definitely not slouches and handle *lots* of traffic. Processors haven't made it that far since these machines' inception, despite what system manufacturers may tell you. - John
  3. Curions what all y'all's reasoning is for not recommending OS X as a host system for FileMaker Server. We, obviously, run *lots* of OS X systems with FileMaker Server here and rarely have any problems with them. Historically, we have seen considerably fewer bug reports regarding FileMaker Server on OS X vs Windows as well. - John
  4. We offer virtual servers specifically designed for FileMaker Server, and have been providing professional FileMaker Hosting for over 16 years. See details at: http://www.pointinspace.com/ Let me know if you have any questions either here or off-list to jmay(at)pointinspace.com. Thanks! - John

  11. That's why we don't host WebDirect on our shared servers. It really needs its own server for proper stability and speed. - John
