Profile T1 network environment

Hello,

 

In our office, we have multiple workstations (with Profile installed in every workstation), and all the files/returns are stored on a LAN, and every workstation is mapped to this network drive.

 

With Covid, we plan to store all the files/returns off-site (e.g. https://aws.amazon.com/lightsail/pricing/), this would enable remote access & client-server set up. Please keep in mind that even with this set up, Profile will be installed in every workstation.

 

Our office and most users have internet speed: 25 down, 10 up.

 

Questions, comments:

1. Speed, performance issues (like latency)

2. Comments, suggestions from people on above, especially people who have experience in this set up

3. Any other solution to tackle remote access for multi-users 

4. Does Intuit provides their own hosting/solution to tackle multi-users?

 

Thanks.

Hi, thank you for using Intuit ProFile community

The ProFile team has not tested for this type if environment and does not recommend hosting environments. Maybe other users have a comment. ProFile does not have a file hosting service. It may be useful to consult with your IT service: they may be able to recommend alternatives and their features and drawbacks

Hope this helps

Hi,

 

What networking alternatives does Profile suggest for a client-server environment that supports remote access with minimal latency, performance issues?

 

Thanks.

Hi, thank you for using Intuit ProFile Community

The ProFile team does not have a recommendation for file storage or ProFile installation environment. Each user needs are unique and should be planned with network IT input.

Hope this helps
