Quickbooks on AWS

Running Quickbooks on AWS/EC2 is easy. It is also easy to migrate your data from on premise and online Quickbooks.
Some information on running Quickbooks on AWS/EC2 here:

Next step is to create an EC2 instance:

You will be running Quickbooks on an AWS EC2 Windows instance and then be using RDP (Microsoft Remote Desktop) to access your AWS online Quickbooks application:
Details on accessing Windows EC2 instances here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/LaunchingAndUsingInstancesWindows.html

1. Migrating data from on premise Quickbooks to AWS:

Transfer Files to Windows Server Instances from Windows
You can work with your instance the same way you would work with any Windows server. For example, you can transfer files between an Amazon EC2 Windows instance and your local Windows computer using the local file sharing feature of Windows Remote Desktop. If you enable this option in your Windows Remote Desktop Connection software, you can access your local files from your Amazon EC2 Windows instances. You can access local files on hard disk drives, DVD drives, portable media drives, and mapped network drives. For information about this feature, go to the Microsoft Support website or go toThe most useful feature of Remote Desktop I never knew about on the MSDN Blogs website.

You will most likely need more Windows and Quickbooks licenses:

1. By default, can have two concurrent RDP users on Windows. Can connect more then two users but need to change licensing….
