Have you asked for these resources? I don't recall seeing one from bigtop for anything like

Again, have you asked for this? I don't see why enabling your job to run tests in a short
lived instance, or a clean instance could not be provided. 

That being said if you have these resources already (where from, might I ask?) we'd probably
ask you to continue to do so - as we have an extremely tight budget, which we plan for a year
in advance at least (as any fiscally sensible people do) so just throwing up 30 AWS instances
is not going to fly very easily. I'm not saying it can't, but it would involve a lot of conversation
and a budget uplift from the board with good justification.
