Hi,

I'd like to run Metatrader 5 in the cloud and am investigating operating systems to use:

I'm looking for something that is fast.

Things I've looked at

  1. My laptop: i7, 16Gb RAM
    Runs lots of windows concurrently with an EA on each quite happily.
  2. Amazon AWS free tier: Windows Server 2012
    This is very slow. I can't run my EA on more than 2 charts without it maxing out
  3. Metaquotes VPS
    How fast is this compared to point 2? I tried it and had some issues so moved onto Amazon AWS
  4. Amazon AWS free tier: Ubuntu
    How fast is this compared to point 2?


Thanks :)

This should not be slow.

Ive run some of these extremely fast (234 charts) so you problem might be your provider.

Make sure you ahve enough Ram, and SSD, Processors and etc.

Something fast and something free don't go well together.

yup.. the provider I'm using is AWS's free tier with Windows Server 2012 (which needs about 1Gb RAM just to run). The AWS machine specs are: 1Gb RAM and I think one 2.5 Ghz processor. So it's very slow.

Hence me wanting to use Ubuntu on (hopefully) the same specc'ed machine.. is it work the effort? How much better are other options (i.e. MetaQuotes VPS, Ubuntu on AWS, etc. )

Exploring options here.

It depends on what you want to do with it.

then keep your local machine or find a decent vps.

you really think changing os on a crap machine will do any good?

i already told you it's not the os it is the hardware.
