Amazon has a new service that may be of interest to many DemandTools JobBuilder customers.

Amazon Workspaces is a service that allows a user to subscribe to a virtual desktop computer in the cloud. For about $30 a month you can have a completely cloud based Windows 10 computer that is very secure, always on and logged in ready to execute JobBuilder batches. You can access your virtual desktop via browser and mobile devices making it easy to edit and configure jobs.

More information can be found at  https://aws.amazon.com/workspaces/
(they offer a free trial period as well)

When used in combination with DropBox the solution gets even better. Heres what I do.

I store all my scenarios in Dropbox directories synchronized with my Amazon Workspace computer. That way my scheduled jobs run on the Amazon Workspaces virtual machine but I can still edit and modify scenarios locally.

Give it a try, it really works well.
