PCSCloud operating platforms can be suspended and restarted as required.
It may be more cost-efficient to suspend a platform if it is temporarily not used, e.g., during the development or testing phases.
While the platform is suspended, you will not pay hourly usage fees.
However, the cost of storage space and the cost of IP addresses remain due.
Note: Any hour started is due.
You can suspend and restart a platform in just a few minutes.
Once restarted, the platform can be used immediately, just like before being suspended, with the same settings and data.
In some cases, the restart of the platform may take a little longer than usual.
This happens when the restart of the platform triggers the setup of "Windows Updates".
Be patient, don't try to perform any other actions on the platform.
And especially, don't restart the platform, otherwise the restart time will be increased even more.
Be patient, the platform will be operational soon.
- Log in to the PCSCloud dashboard.
- In the list of platforms on the left, select an operating platform to shut it down or to restart it.
- In the "Dashboard" widget, you can click "Shut down" to temporarily suspend the activity of the platform.
To restart the platform, simply click "Restart".
