Sure, this is useful for some tasks, but it seems like a General Chat topic, not something for the Projects, Designs, and Technical Stuff forum.

I messed around with spinning up a windows desktop on AWS a few years back, but didn't have enough of a real need for it to actually figure out why it wasn't working for me. Oh, by the way, their EBS persistant storage has a reputation for having very inconsistent performance, so if you are going to download something and run computations on it you probably want to use the local storage for best I/O performance, but then you have to worry that it gets persisted so you don't loose it if the instance restarts.

And WTF is this crap you keep throwing around about it being faster than copy-paste?  What does that even mean?

Apples and Oranges..
Comparing DiskIO with network throughput!
Sad part is, he does not even realise that they cannot be compared. Not should not, cannot.
If god made us in his image,
and we are this stupid

Krish, I think its time for you to pm him in Hindi to avoid further embarrassment (I know you capable of  ;)), seems like there is a language or experience/knowledge gap.

I can. However, I wont.
There is a saying in telugu(my mother tongue), the gist of which is this:


If you try hard enough,
you can extract oil from sand,
you can even find a rabbit's horn,
but no matter how hard you try,
you can never ever satisfy a fool.


:-D
It sounds rude, but it is actually much more subtle in the original form.

As Speedtest is also using AWS for it's back end, the most you can say is that the AWS instance is testing the ability of one AWS instance to talk to another, and it is very likely ( because AWS uses distributed units to do the Speedtest, and will route to the closest one to the request) going to either be in the same machine, same rack or same data centre. Basically a test of how good the AWS switches are, not much else.

Don't mind them, I can see countless scenarios where having an RDP instance running on the cloud is more efficient as long as your latency to AWS is low and you have a reliable connection of 200Kbps or even less. By reliable I mean no packet loss.

Even better with a GRID based desktop. You could hire any instance that you need with GPU on demand without the expense and you can pull data from huge online databases blazing fast, like say, GIS data that can be processed on the instance.

Or even just a simple web browser that will refresh the screen way faster with minimum hardware and network requirements at your location.

But this does little for embedded electronics where the instance has to communicate with your usb device to program, so I can see why most people here would shy away, specially because of the aversion to cloud storage of projects etc.

But cloud computing is a thing and has many benefits that would surpass local systems at a fraction of the cost.

BTW for a good RDP experience you only need about 200Kbps and if your latency is about 14ms most people for normal work won't notice the extra lag, specially if you have a low latency display.
