Anyone know any cloud hosting that would allow nested virtualisation? Before I go through the process of setting everything up on EC2.

    Why do you need to nest? Why not just spin up multiple small instances? And shut them down when you're not using them.

    I wasn't sure about the costs involved with that. Can you get multiple instances for free or cheap, do you know?

    Prices can be cheap. Also, just like at home w/ your power bill, you pay for the time that your AWS infrastructure is "on." You shut it off and your cost halts.

    AWS also has a free tier that new accounts are eligible for.

    Containers are also very popular now. That might be help you achieve some of the "nesting" you were looking for.

    What is your use case?
