Brian sorry to bother you again, but I was using the AWS Pricing Calculator and I found It far more expensive that I thought It would be. What kind of machine are you using in Azure? Do you use them as reserved machines or on Demand?
Here's my go-to Azure setup, just under $1/hour plus a few cents for bandwidth and storage. The key is using a spot instance. Not sure what it's called on AWS, just means that you can be kicked out if the system needs the capacity for people paying full price. In my experience all cloud providers offer pretty similar services and pricing.Image Not Found
Yes, AWS has spot instances too. So you pay only on Demand?
Aren't spot instances a problem with tight deadlines?
