I am currently standing before a decision on how to design a system that would handle computing of statistical data on the cloud.
I would like to know what server structure should I use to be able to easily scale computing with the cloud.
To be more specific I would like to know if, for the purpose of computing statistics data, I should only use cloud or a hybrid (dedicated servers and cloud servers).
The service I am currently building will analyze mobile data for my clients.
The bigger the client, the bigger the DB, and more calculations.
If you know the best server design pattern that best fits this kind of scenario I would greatly appreciate.
