Why Third Party Hosting
Hosting your database with one of the providers below means someone else is taking care of your FileMaker Server: of updating it, tweaking it, and managing backups. Unless you have reliable automated backups in your current setup, you should consider 3rd party hosting for that reason alone. Or get your own FileMaker Server: it's invaluable.
But hosting really shines for distributed teams. These providers have fast machines on high bandwidth connections, so they can offer your users a better experience than they'd have connecting in to your office.
And of course these folks all have experience with Zulu.
Zulu hosting is BYOL (bring your own license) so you'll buy a Zulu license from us and then tell your hosting partner you have one; they'll set you up with your own Zulu directory where you can register Zulu and get to work.
