comment Outgrowing cron: what's the next scheduler?
Condor can handle your situation. You can constrain jobs from DAGs in all kinds of ways so they target very specific machines or hardware in your pools.

comment How much does sql queries cost in AWS?
@Tom O'Connor: EBS performance is, in my experience, far more consistent than S3 storage. S3 read and write times are all over the map.

comment How much does sql queries cost in AWS?
@nik: I should add "data on disk and queries against that disk" to my last paragraph since you are charged for I/O requests to the EBS volume. And the SQL server can make many queries against disk to bring data in to memory to serve up front end query requests.

Use a :port when entering a hostname and leave the display number blank.

comment How do I get Chicken of the VNC to connect to a port less than 5900?
I took a look at the source code for the upcoming 2.0 release and it is not possible to go below port 5900 if you use the dialog box for the display number. It is hard coded to add 5900 to any value you supply there.
