AWS can provide lots of memory and CPU for your ThoughtSpot instance, and it can be easily updated from development instances.
Your database capacity will determine the number of instances you’ll need and the instance network/storage requirements. In addition, you can go with multiple VMs based on your dataset size.
The security group setting of your ThoughtSpot instance on AWS is up to you. You can find more information about which ports to open in the network ports reference.
A little about AWS
AWS is a secure cloud services platform offered by Amazon. Using ThoughtSpot on AWS allows you to easily add instances as your dataset grows. You can do everything you’d normally want to do in a traditional data center with AWS. It features an on-demand delivery of IT resources and applications via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing.
Amazon EC2 is based on instance types and the region in which your instances are running. When you are connected to an instance, you can use it just like you use any other server. There is no minimum fee and you only pay for what you use.
Using Amazon EC2 lets you develop and deploy applications faster since there is no need to manage hardware. Therefore, it is easy to scale and manage computing capacity.
As persistent block level storage volumes, Amazon EBS helps with scaling your EC2 instances. Each EBS volume is automatically replicated to protect you from component failure, and offers low-latency performance.
