Hi All,

I am not a current user of this product but we are looking into using both FlowForce and MapForce. As an initial design I was asked whether these should be separate servers or can they be colocated.

I imagine that there are many of you out there that have experience with this so any advice you can provide would be greatly helpful.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

MapForce Server is more like a runtime that either integrates with FlowForce Server on the same machine, or that you can run via command line or various APIs. So in a typical setup you have one or more end users running MapForce on their PC, they deploy mappings to the FlowForce server, and FlowForce orchestrates execution of jobs that run these mappings on MapForce Server.

If you need to split the load to multiple machines due to high volume, FlowForce has the ability to control additional FlowForce instances on other machines as remote workers.
