Apologies if this is not the right place and rather general, but I was wondering whether anyone here can share her/his experience when selecting instances to run RStudio on AWS.
I am working on a (for my standards) somewhat comprehensive text mining project (with a lot of regex-es, one file around 300 MB), and doing it on my laptop (16 gig RAM, i5-8xx) is possible, but slow.
Aside from trying to optimizing the code, I would like to try running RStudio in the cloud on a more powerful machine. As far as I can see AWS provides a rather convenient service for this, however, one has to know what instance best serves one's purpose. Since I am pretty new to AWS, I was wondering whether anyone has an experience with AWS instances and RStudio. Here a link to the myriad of EC2 instances
What are people using? What would you recommend?
Many thanks! And apologies for the rather general question.
