How about migrating VMX to AWS? https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/vm-import/

I donít have such needs. I normally setup my testing systems in the cloud due to ease and flexible cost. You canít run consumer Windows in AWS though. Microsoft licensing for cloud is only Windows Server in AWS

Usually it will be cost, operational requirements, availability, adaptability and so forth.

It's basically licensing from Microsoft that makes things kinda confusing here. AWS only offers Pay-As-You-Go licensing for Window Servers. If you were to port an existing Windows Client image into AWS, generally it falls into BYOL.

Microsoft Azure does offer Windows client, but only if you own a developer license as stipulated here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azu.../client-images

Your OEM license is not transferrable, so you can't image your existing Windows 10 that comes with your machine into the AWS or Azure or any other devices. If you have a retail license, I believe you need to revoke from your existing device before you can re-activate in the cloud. This is what I understood, they might not be entirely correct though.

AWS workspace does offers virtual Windows client for your to remotely manage them, if that is what you want. It might not fit your use case though. Perhaps it would be nice to know more detail into why you need to image the entire Windows client into the cloud. Could that server be running in Windows Server too ? Can you do a reinstallation ?

I am exploring the possiblility to have trading software avaialble when am travelling and hence the though of having the consumer window image in the cloud. Was of the impression that it not possible to remote desktop to my home laptop from outside? am comparing bwtween this 2 solution hence the question

You don't need a consumer Windows OS in the cloud, you can always install your trading software in Windows Server, it should most probably work. Most software are not so specific unless licensing purposes.

If you want to remote back to your home installation, it's simple. If you do not have a static IP, then you need to use a dynamic domain name provider such as no-ip.com.

Create your free account in no-ip.com and create a hostname such as abc.dyndns.net

Most routers will be able to update no-ip.com(dyndns) on its own. Otherwise install the no-ip.com client in your Windows system to perform the periodic update of IP.

At your router, perform a port forwarding from perhaps 3389(RDP), and map it to your Windows server at home. Suppose your Windows server at home is given a static ip of 192.168.0.100, then map your external IP 3389 -> 192.168.0.100:3389

Sometimes your ISP may block certain ports, then map higher port numbers such as 13389 -> 3389, or 23389 -> 3389. It can be any high port numbers.

There are some cases where the ISP don't even issue your router public IP, just privately NAT IP. This is much more tricky and require an external server to route traffic, but lets try the above before we go deeper on this.

When you are outside, just open your RDP client and access abc.dyndns.net:[EXTERNAL PORT], you should be able to remote access your Windows system at home.

Some places like corporate, or hotel may have a more stringent firewall which may deny outgoing ports limited to only port 80 or 443. In this case, you may also create another port forwarding rule to map EXTERNAL_IP:443 -> 192.1568.0.100:3389

Then you may RDS using abc.dyndns.net:443. There are a number of tricks up my sleeves, so it really depends on how wide you want to cover. One may also employ VPN approaches to have a much more secure way of accessing your home network, but unless your router supports, it's slightly more convoluted.
