I have to run optimization backtests on MT5 on custom symbols because I need to set custom spreads and timeframes. The Cloud network does not work with custom symbols, so I need another option to run these tests much faster. Does anyone have experience using Amazon AWS/Instances for testing with MT5, Thanks!

My experience with AWS and other VPS/VDS providers is that it get's pretty expensive if you want real powerful performance.

If you need them for a short period of time you can use them. In case you need this high performance longer it's much cheaper to build a powerful system yourself.

Ok thanks for the info, how much are you taking about here? Say running them for a few hours? Also what other VPS type services have you used that are similar to AWS? as after contacting them they are not ideal solutions.
