AWS Elasticsearch, NLP and MongoDb vs. my own baby farm

I am about to begin a large research project using natural language processing and web crawling. So, I am wondering about what AWS can offer for a scalable platform to undertake what may be a large amount of processing. I can see the advantages of having them handle everything for me. But I can also see that hardware costs can be super cheap.

I have no real experience setting up my own network or building my own desktop machines, so, I would certainly lose time on configurations.
What are the pros and cons of either plan?

You don't have hardware, a place to put the hardware, or knowledge of how to setup hardware. Add that to scalability and Amazon/azure seems pretty clear to me.

I do agree. It's also pretty hard to put in a suitcase :)
