Hello, I am a grad student TA trying to teach qiime2 to a couple of small groups in the fall. I thought a good way to do this would be to set up an AWS EC2 instance the students could log into and run the tutorials on (since their personal pcs are often windows, teaching linux command line often requires this anyway).
So I figured out the free tier for EC2 is simply not enough to run qiime2 (please correct me if I’m wrong here!). I’d like to ask the department to pay for this resource, but I’d like to keep it small enough to just run the basics. What tier of EC2 do you think I’ll need to buy to run this? How much space do you put on your instances that run qiime?
Sorry if this is a really newbie question, I just really want to make this work!
