I don't use AWS because I feel having a credit card on file is quite a big risk. A DDOS or a misconfiguration could lead to a massive bill. I need bill capping.
Alibaba is closer to where I am. The reduced lag there could be useful. Where can I read up on using Alibaba cloud as a desktop for purposes such as CAD and game testing? Most of the guides I find are aimed at server processes.
Perhaps there is a more consumer friendly service built off the back of Alibaba like Shadow Servers?
