LONDON, UK, April 7th, 2004 – FileMaker announced today that it will offer a free preview of FileMaker Server 7 starting later this month for all FileMaker customers. Pre-registration for the Preview begins today on the FileMaker website. The Preview includes a functional pre-release version of FileMaker Server 7, which can be used with a trial or retail version of the new FileMaker Pro 7. All pre-registrants will be notified via email when the Preview begins with download instructions for the software.

FileMaker Server 7 is high-performance server software that efficiently manages shared FileMaker Pro 7 database solutions. FileMaker Server 7 will feature a significantly remodeled server architecture that can host millions of data tables and leverage high-performance hard disk storage systems, multi-CPU server hardware, and a wide range of server operating systems including Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server, Windows 2000, and Windows 2003 Server. FileMaker Server 7 will allow users to protect their data with industry-standard security features, such as SSL (Secure Socket Layer), and perform live backups of data without interruption to other users. Users can leverage existing user accounts with external authentication based on Active Directory or Open Directory.

“We’ve had overwhelming positive response to our recently released FileMaker Pro 7 and our customers are eager to begin testing their server-based solutions and planning their upgrades and new deployments,” said Ryan Rosenberg, vice president, Marketing and Services, FileMaker. “The FileMaker Server 7 Preview is an excellent way for users of shared FileMaker 7 databases to get acquainted with the new features in this product, including data transfer encryption and much more,” added Rosenberg. “Since it works with our FileMaker Pro 7 trial version, it is also a free opportunity for anyone to experiment with a complete state-of-the art easy-to-use workgroup database solution.”

Last month, the company shipped FileMaker Pro 7 and FileMaker Developer 7, the first members of the most significant new FileMaker product line ever, with breakthroughs in ease-of-use, customisability and developer productivity.
