21:02 bene some types of HPC are still not cost effective at scale in AWS
21:03 bene i haven't looked at recent numbers, but S3 used to be quite expensive compared to homegrown on-prem storage
21:03 bene and more and more fields are subject to exploding data volumes
21:03 bene so... hard to see big research universities moving fully to the cloud any time soon
21:06 bene and thinking more about harvard specifically, data center costs in this area are quite high
21:06 bene land and power are expensive
