    dose licensing work ok with aws?

    I would have thought you'd have to wait for a while between sessions to move license.

    +1 it would be nice for very long local reconstructions too.

    I think the license will only work on the intended instance and nowhere else.
    Anyway I do not have any PC with nvidia GPU, so using amazon ec2 will be cheaper (and a lot faster) for a long time compared to upgrading a pc for that.
    I'm ok with using it only on the cloud.

    don't you need to wait a week between changing though?

    so i guess you would need to either keep paying for amazon while not using it. or wait a week until you can start up a new instance.

    Hi, sorry for the late response.
    EC2 instances can be stopped and the billing stops accordingly.
    You can then start them when you prefer and nothing will change, it's like a poweroff and then a new start of your own computer, so if you license your ec2 instance and use only that for the computation, there's absolutely no problem.
    You don't have to pay anything while the instance is stopped, except for the storage that has to remain available (EBS is very cheap, .1$ per gb per month, and under 30GB for the first year you pay nothing).
