World class performance with minimal system resource allocation! ProVide outperforms most windows ftp servers. Tests with 500 concurrent active users have been performed without any performance concerns (on a standard desktop PC).
To boost performance: Strict memory allocation, deallocation, and resource control also means proper deallocation after completion of each operation. This is perhaps one of the main benefits of ProVide Server. Since we actually know exactly what we are doing and test our software extensively we combine security, performance and smooth allocation/deallocation of resources. ProVide Server will use all available hardware to the limit if so required by the number of simultaneous connections, actions and scripts. However we also deallocate resources when they are not needed.
Something to watch out for, performance-wise, is the combination of extensive encryption with complex algotithms and keys in combination with massive amounts of connections. Encryption requires server performance and this in turn will affect the selection of a suitable server in the same way as you would consider firewall performance in relation to the number of incoming VPN-connections.
