Poll: Should the dulles testers be moved to EC2?
Yeah, that looks awesome, go for it!
Hard to say until I get more information and see how big the impact will be.
Please don't, I rely on trending the results over time and any change will destroy my use.

Move Dulles testing to EC2?
I'm looking at possibly moving the Dulles test systems to use EC2 instead of running on hardware in my basement Big Grin

I'll do a lot more testing and provide the details of the analysis before committing but I wanted to get a feel for how people would feel about making the move.

- The test environment will be consistent for a long period of time (and there's no risk of it changing just because I move)
- It looks like EC2 provides more consistent results when running multiple tests
- It also looks the the times with and without video capture are identical
- (essentially) infinite capacity. More test systems can be brought up as needed
- The public instance will be using test systems that are available for anyone to replicate for private instances

- Test results from EC2 are not identical to what is currently running in Dulles so comparison of times to previous tests will not necessarily be valid (this will be a problem if I ever change out the hardware as well)
- The EC2 instances are VM's without hardware acceleration for video so things like IE9's hardware acceleration will not be active (don't think this impacts most "pages" and is more relevant for highly active apps but hard to say)
- The costs (to me) will be higher but probably cheaper than if I put dedicated servers in a co-lo
