Additional Engines (Optional)
You can buy additional Standard Engines and or Dynamic Engines for extra processing power.
How Do Engines Work?
FME Server provides enterprise automation for your desktop workflows. Engines are the power behind FME Server and process jobs one-at-a-time. If multiple jobs exist, they either queue up behind the single engine or get distributed across multiple engines for simultaneous processing power.
Per Standard Engine
Your license includes one Standard Engine. Standard Engines are permanently licensed and are always available to process data.
Standard Engines are best suited for data tasks that are predictable and consistent. You pay a fixed amount for Standard Engines regardless of the amount of data processed over the course of the year. To receive software updates after the first year you need to pay annual maintenance for each extra engine.
* Price shown is for one standard engine, excluding GST and any other applicable taxes
Minimum for Dynamic Engines
|Cost (NZD)||Processing Hours||Processing Hourly Cost (NZD)|
Dynamic Engines are purchased by the number of processing hours and are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.
Dynamic Engines are best suited when the need for data processing varies. For example, if you are expecting a large spike in data processing you could add 100 additional engines for that week and only pay for the processing time used. Your per-hour cost gets cheaper as you buy more hours.
* Minimum price shown for Dynamic Engines excludes GST and any other applicable taxes

For example, if you have five users, you could purchase a fixed license for each computer. Or you could purchase a floating license with additional seats.
