I was curious...are things like "lock pages in memory" and "perform volume level tasks" necessary for SQL Servers that are running on an EC2 instance in AWS? I turned them on out of habit, but was just wondering...is it even necessary? A quick Google search really didn't turn up anything so thought of checking here to see if anyone else has though wondered the same...

You have to look after the EC2 instance like any other virtual machine running SQL Server. So, depending on the version of SQL Server I would definitely set perform volume maintenance - for instant file initialization and if you set Lock pages in memory on other instances I would set it here too...
I would treat an EC2 instance like a normal server I was managing and maintaining.

Thanks, this is what I thought but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing the obvious.
