Well, this means only that Runtime guys should update their docs. :-)
Valentina Server exists about 4 years already.

You need download and install

A) Valentina for Revolution ADK

    this allow you develop Revolution apps with Valentina local engine
    AND/OR with Valentina client to access remote Valentina Server.

    on left side you can see menu with links to download and docs.

B) Valentina Office Server

    this is SERVER, like mySQL or Postgre. You can install it on the same
    localhost, or on remote computer.
What else is not clear, Dan?

Also from your letter is not clear if you want/need install only single
SERVER, or you talk about some application solution that you need deploy to
hundreds of customers?

Where you want install server?  Should it be on some ISP hosting, or this is
e.g. some schools or other companies?
