[AMBER] cloud vs purchase

Dear Amber experts,

I would like you about your experience about running amber extensive simulations on a cloud (amazon or any other) vs purchasing a new GPU x 4 machine. I have no experience at all with clouds.

Does anybody uses clouds for extensive MD?
Do you have a cost estimation comparison (per ns x day for example)?
How difficult it is to deal with implementation and compilation issues on a cloud?

My comparison should be based on purchasing a new GPU X 4 machine, for which I would invest let’s say about 6000$, and comparing it to running on a cloud instead.

Thanks a lot!!
