    1. Educational institutions listed on the CRA's public list of qualified donees do not need to apply for confirmation of eligibility. For the list of prescribed universities outside Canada, go to List of Charities - basic search, select “List of charities and other qualified donees”, and then select “Universities outside Canada.” However, we recommend that institutions that have not received confirmation of eligibility apply by writing to us to confirm that the institution is considered a university outside Canada.

    1. DB instance class and Oracle Database edition you wish to run

      For Oracle, it should be straightforward. Rule on how to count vCPU here https://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/pricing/cloud-licensing-070579.pdf. Meaning it can go directly to default/shared tenancy.

    1. BYOL and Oversubscription


      • "EC2 Dedicated hosts are generally the first choice in the Microsoft BYOL realm unless the customer is absolutely unwilling to right-size their highly oversubscribed instances." (If unwilling to rightsize, the options for oversubscription are EC2 Bare Metal or VMware Cloud in AWS)

      ^---there is another option to oversubscribe CPU (more than Dedicated Hosts's 2:1) using EC2 Bare Metal instances or VMware Cloud on AWS

      • there is a scenario where the licensing is tied to the physical cores

      • we can do "Optimize CPU" (customize the CPU-RAM combo) to exactly match current server config and potentially save on licenses especially for memory-bound configuration. Example: customize a combo with low core count to high RAM. Licensing is tied to the core count.

      • Best practice to look at normalizing generations of CPU by computing for the CPU performance index (hint: https://d0.awsstatic.com/whitepapers/Demystifying_vCPUs.pdf )

    1. Create hybrid cloud consistency

      TODO: quick dive -- has hybrid identity management/sync + (these are not in AWS):

      • Integrated management and security across your hybrid cloud: This component provides you with a cohesive way to monitor, manage, and secure the environment, which enables increased visibility and control.
      • A consistent data platform for the datacenter and the cloud: This component creates data portability, combined with seamless access to on-premises and cloud data services for deep insight into all data sources.
      • Unified development and DevOps across the cloud and on-premises datacenters: This component allows you to move applications between the two environments as needed. Developer productivity improves because both locations now have the same development environment.
    2. Policy decisions.

    1. For Kraken and GDAX you may wish to use --order_type="taker", this uses market orders instead of limit orders. You usually pay a higher fee, but you can be sure that your order is filled instantly. This means that the sim will more closely match your live trading. Please note that GDAX does not charge maker fees (limit orders), so you will need to choose between not paying fees and running the risk orders do not get filled on time, or paying somewhat high % of fees and making sure your orders are always filled on time.
    1. RSI dropped below 30, signaling that there might be no more sellers left in the market and that the move could be over.

      RSI < 30 = oversold = price about to go up

      RSI > 70 = overbought = price about to go down

    1. When designing the addressing plan for an application, the primary consideration is to keep the CIDR blocks used for creating subnets within a single zone as contiguous as possible
    1. The CIDR block must not be the same or larger than the CIDR range of a route in any of the VPC route tables.
    2. You have a limit on the number of CIDR blocks you can associate with a VPC and the number of routes you can add to a route table. You cannot associate a CIDR block if this results in you exceeding your limits.
      • IPv4 CIDR blocks per VPC 5 This limit is made up of your primary CIDR block plus 4 secondary CIDR blocks.

      • Route tables per VPC


      This limit includes the main route table.

      • Routes per route table (non-propagated routes)


      You can increase this limit up to a maximum of 1000; however, network performance might be impacted. This limit is enforced separately for IPv4 routes and IPv6 routes.

      If you have more than 125 routes, we recommend that you paginate calls to describe your route tables for better performance.

    3. You cannot increase or decrease the size of an existing CIDR block.
    4. The allowed block size is between a /28 netmask and /16 netmask.
    5. Adding IPv4 CIDR Blocks to a VPC

      Expanding a VPC IPv4 CIDR block

    1. The permissible size of the block ranges between /16 netmask and a /28 netmask.

      Permissible AWS CIDR block range for AWS VPC

    1. When creating VPCs and VSwitches, you have to specify the private IP address range for the VPC in the form of a Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) block. Private IP address range of VPC Use,, and or their subsets as the private IP address range for your VPC. Note the following when planning the private IP address range of VPC: If you have only one VPC and it does not have to communicate with a local data center, you are free to use any of the preceding IP address ranges or their subnets. If you have multiple VPCs, or you want to build a hybrid cloud composed of one or more VPCs and local data centers, we recommend that you use a subset of these standard IP address ranges as the IP address range for your VPC and make sure that the netmask is no larger than /16. You also need to consider whether the classic network is used when selecting a VPC CIDR block. If you plan to connect ECS instances in a classic network with a VPC, we recommend that you do not use the IP address range, which is also used by the classic network.
