Has anyone utilized Amazon for the file upgrade utility. We are going to be moving to Solidworks 2013 soon, with EPDM 2013. When I did the Solidworks 2012 upgrade utility with 3 highend laptops as work horses, the process was still running 2 days on.
I was thinking of doing this on a weekend in the cloud, using a number of Amazon EC2 instances that have 40GB of memory and 12+ processors.
I would have a vault in the cloud also, but the db is at my premise. Only thing is after the files upgrade, I still have to copy down all that data to my local file server before engineers get in on Monday.
