MyQuickCloud uses very few computer resources, it’s made up of two parts:
- The Server – the program used to make your PC the host and,
- The Client – the program that you log into when you want to connect to your host
Those two programs don’t need a lot of your computers’ resources to run, but having two or more users on your PC running lots of other applications at the same time will be more resource heavy.
Will my programs work with more than one person on the host at the same time?
That’s a very difficult question to answer. Some programs (like QuickBooks) use what’s called a database manager to make sure simultaneous users don’t overwrite one another while working. Some database managers are very good and deal with those requests efficiently, others will make your computer’s fan sound like a jet plane and slow you down because they aren’t so efficiently coded.
The best thing to do is to:
- Check your product’s support site for their system requirements. Look to see if there is any information given about multi-user (or per user) requirements.
- Start a Free 7-day MyQuickCloud trial and give it a go! That really is the best way to know how your PC will manage your solution.
