  1. We're finishing up a first-phase PBS implementation. Looking ahead, I'm about to try running a PBS server in our colo, coordinating a node in Amazon EC2. Subject to the expected caveats about network reliability, data locality, everything else one expects in running over a WAN, this seems like a really good way to scale our node availability. The obvious questions: 1. Has anyone tried this already? How'd it go? 2. Is there anything about the server-MOM communication specifically that would react poorly to e.g. 1000ms latency, or some percentage of packet loss? It seems like the worst that would happen is they lose touch, and the server already has policies for handling that. Thanks, Chris
