Thanks for the replies Rob.
I am interested in testing mainly because not a lot of projects have
spare clusters lying around for performance regression testing. But
then these days we can get machines from EC2 easily & relatively
cheaply, so I was wondering if other projects are migrating their test
infrastructure to EC2.
