HI
I have written some applications that automate tasks.
I want to have these applications run from the cloud.
The exe's basically collate information, process spreadsheets and log files...
The results are put into a mysql database and then present the processed data via a SAAS.

I was hoping someone could steer me in the right direction on how to get the exe's running on AMAZON.
What is the correct service to look at as I am new to cloud based application

Thanks

'exe's require Windows.  I don't know if Amazon has any Windows servers.  I think they're all Linux.
