Hi  George and Mike

Thanks for your information.  Did you use 186 i2.8xlarge servers for
testing?
Total one hour cost = 186 * 6.82 = $1,268.52.
Do you know any person or company can sponsor this?

For our test approach, I have checked an industry standard from big data
bench(http://prof.ict.ac.cn/BigDataBench/industry-standard-benchmarks/)
Maybe we can test TeraSort to see the performance is better than your
record or not.

Please let me know if you have any comments.
Thanks for the support.




Best regards
Hawin
