Live Trading - Question about multiple strategies

In all honesty it's been too long since I've experimented with QC, but I'm really hoping to get back to it more regularly.  A question I have though, looking ahead to turning on actual live trading, is how do folks manage multiple live trading strategies?  

Is it possible to run mutliple QC projects in parallel and live trade? 

Or, can a user only run one QC project in live trading mode and would need to code the project in such a way as to handle multiple strategies in the OnData method?

i am not a live trade but what i have heard from others that you would need to build this two strategies into one. if you would want to run it seperatly you would need to pay for another server approx. 10$ more.

If you are Interactive brokers user you could create 2 users & pay for 2 data subscriptions each 1,5 oder 2$.

If you are an oanda user and IB you would need 2 server running parallel because QC does not support multple brokerage.

there is some info in the community for example this official answer from the staff which should still be up to date:

Great info, thank you!
