So, this is more of a general question than a specific problem. I'm using AWS and I have my main web server on an m1.medium instance but there are some computationally intensive tasks that I want to run so I created an high compute (multicore, high speed) c1.medium instance as well.
I was thinking of putting all the scripts I want to run in the compute server. These are obviously separate volumes but I wanted to know which would be a better approach.
- SSH + call the script on the compute server or
- NFS mount the compute server and call the script
I'm fairly sure I know the behavior of #1 but I'm not sure about #2. If I did that would it use the CPU on the compute instance? Because that's the whole point in splitting them
