Amazon offer the first year of their subscription for FREE, and this means that if Algorithmic traders deploy their Forex Robots at Amazon they save some cash on VPS hosting.
A lot of traders out there do recommend AWS. But I’m going to take a different stance
DON’T MISTAKE AWS FOR WHAT IT’S NOT
Amazon Web Services is designed for businesses, and NOT for retail traders.
The only good advantage of AWS is that 1st year is free.
The bad thing about it is that:
1. NO SUPPORT
2. ONLY 1GB RAM:
In this case Server Stability will depend on the EAs. If you ask me, 10 on each MetaTrader is a bit of a stretch for this type of server… As soon as one of the Robots decides to run a demanding calculation, you’ll get a system overload, and… well, this is the point you will need to call support. Hold on! There is none: refer above (you’re screwed).
3. AFTER 1ST YEAR: PAY-PER-HOUR
4. NOT CHEAP
I don’t have anything against Amazon VPS, I think they are doing a great job in the space of Data Analytics.
However, don’t mistake AWS for what it’s not. AWS is designed for businesses, not for people.
I Wish You All Happy Trading
