Hi,

anybody using AWS for their trading?

It's free for a year, has a datacenter in London.
And best: you are in control and can restart the instance, if the rdp connection doesn't work anymore (as I had with 4xsolutions).

I wonder, why it's not on the list of VPS.

Hi, I use AWS EC2 and have had no problems. I run 2 instances of MT4 with 15 charts. It's a great basic VPS for a couple of MT4's, if you are intending to use a lot of platforms running a lot of EA's then it will struggle.

AWS EC2 is a service from Amazon for virtual servers.
There are a bunch of low size servers free for 12 month.

It's not a dedicated trading platform, but why should it be?

@jimcameron
Thanks for your impression, which I'd second.
That's why I was wondering why it's not on the list.

Azure from Microsoft same issue.

@MicF
I am using it for years. Even when you switch to paid mode after first year it is cheap and reliable.
IMHO it is much better than metaquotes VPS built in mt4 in all terms.

Tried it. Closed it. Incredibly slow. Ages to log in via RDC. Just hangs. Free. Get what you pay for.

Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.

Looks like an extensive test.

In which setup do you use it 2 cores 2GB or just the plain 1 core 1GB?

Hi @Wamski I don't use fxvm because AWS works for me and it's free so I save $19 every month. Maybe other traders would find it useful to have a free VPS, and they can decide if it is good enough.
