Cloud pc suggestions

I'm looking to have an online workstation. Any ideas on how to make this happen?

Amazon does specifically this:, and I know people who've done it with Azure and Google Cloud instances as well.

What do you want to do with the workstation? Things like what OS and programs you'll want to run and what sort of workloads you'll need to support would help narrow down options. Also knowing your price range would help. If you just need to run jobs somewhere and can use Linux, your options open up a lot, to pretty much any VPS (Virtual Private Server) provider. If you want to run graphical apps remotely on a Windows VM, you'll need to be a lot pickier.

Also, I don't want to deflect too much from the question, but why do you want a cloud workstation vs. a local workstation and cloud data?

OP you really need to tell us more about what your hoping to accomplish here, Your budget etc. What you said originally is just too vague to really provide any guidance.
