We currently have 13 physical LG's and are exporing the possibility of creating LG servers in AWS. Has anyone else attempted similar?
You can run an LG on a cloud host. You'll need to take into account the security aspects, access from Controller to the LG and from the LG to the application tested (AUT) and the relevant network latency.
LoadRunner Controller supports such LGs. It can also help you spin up hosts and take them down after the test has completed.
