If I use a cloud instance with 96 CPU cores, but if I wrote my Python code as just a serial job, then would running my code on the cloud instance have the same effect as using just 1 CPU core for processing my code?

Hello,

I am a newbie in using cloud instance to run my code. My question may be a very silly one, but I am a very beginner and I need some help in this. Thank you for your understanding.

I am trying to use Amazon Web Services EC2 instance with 96 cores to run my single Python code. I am wondering, if I wrote my Python code as just a serial (sequential) job, then would running my code on the EC2 instance have the same effect as running my code on just 1 CPU core (i.e. would 95 cores of the EC2 instance be wasted)?

Thank you,
