I only have experience with the on premise version (and desktop) deep freeze, but I don't think the cloud would be checking in every 5 minutes, and even if it did I don't think you would see a noticeable performance difference compared to the desktop version.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Deepfreeze Cloud and computer speeds
Would installing Deepfreeze Cloud clients onto a computer have any effect on speed? For example, might Deepfreeze Cloud be checking in with the server waiting for a response and adding a little time onto things like starting up and starting applications?
