FME Flow should run on almost any virtualization provider's platform on any supported operating system. FME Form additionally requires GUI support (most leading vendors, such as AWS and DigitalOcean provide this, but a small number of other services may not).

Custom Installation of FME Flow

The recommended installation option for FME Flow is either Express or Distributed. If you need to perform a custom installation of FME Flow, then you can learn more about the recommended web application servers, databases, and more in Planning an FME Flow Installation.

Hardware Requirements

Safe Software is no longer recommending hardware requirements. Although FME can operate on legacy hardware, additional memory, faster CPU and disk will significantly improve processing time. 

FME Flow's processing power can be scaled by purchasing additional FME Engines. For optimal performance, we recommend that each engine have a dedicated CPU core. To deploy FME Flow without the constraints of hardware, learn more about FME Flow Hosted.


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 vary based upon the provider – please contact them directly for full details.
