A important note on virtual office use and billing

When you are performing virtual office testing, be frugal with your usage. 

  • Start only the virtual machine you need to test.
  • Shut down virtual machines that are no longer needed. 
  • Do not leave virtual machines running over the weekend unless you are specifically testing something that requires it. 
  • Stop and discard your virtual offices when you are finished testing.

Unnecessary virtual offices left active with running virtual machines will incur unwanted overage charges.
