Subject AW: Mustella on Amazon EC2
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2013 16:02:56 GMT
>From my experience, you need at least a medium sized windows instance. 
If you have a look at http://aws.amazon.com/de/ec2/pricing/ you could estimate the costs,
but from my experience the monthly bill is a lot higher than you would anticipate. Currently
I have the one node running for about 10 Hours per month (I configured Teamcity Agent to shutdown
the instance after idling for 10 munites and I manually trigger the builds every few days).
My bill is at about 23$/Month which relates to 355 hours (14 days) of up-time according to
the price list. I guess there might be more factors making up the price of a node. Unfortunately
I don't actually know how the final bill is actually calculated (They don't show it on the
bill). So I would be carefull to volunteer of paying the bill as this might be a lot higher
than you anticipate.

Anyone with experience care to make a guess what a sufficiently
powerful instance would cost per month? I for one would be willing to
donate a couple of dollars (at least) per month to see this happen,
and I'm sure more people will feel the same way...
