How Licenses and 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.

In this example the checkout operators are engines and the customers are jobs for FME Server to process. All this is to say that FME Server offers single-threaded architecture.

You can either install it on your own server by choosing an on-premises deployment (FME Server), or deploy it in the cloud with FME Cloud by taking advantage of a free credit.
