What happens if connection to remote process provider is lost?

Recently someone asked me:
"What happens if I am consuming the process from a project area that is on another machine and that machine goes down. Can I still use the process on the machine my consumer is on?" 

I decided to share the answer with the community in case others want to know the same thing. 

I will answer this in my next post.

 If the provider machine goes down, the consumers will continue to operate.  There may be warnings in the log and a warning will appear if someone opens the project area in a project area editor, but the process will continue to be enforced.

The way sharing across machines works, there is a local copy of the process stored on the consumer machine. The copy is updated whenever there is a change to the process on the provider machine. So, if the provider goes down, the consumer continues with whatever the process was when the provider went down.
