        • I use Google Compute Engine instances as flexible, reproducible infrastructure that scale with my data science tasks.

        • Between Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services, I chose Google Cloud for its intuitive UI. SSH within the browser is very convenient.

        My primary OS is LINUX, Linode gives me everything I need in hosting service.

        Enough RAM for the price, high speed network and CPUs.
