That was really interesting. So you need a dask instance that prefect cloud talks to? I thought that would be included in the prefect cloud.
Or is that only if I want to use dask? (I'm in very early days just trying to figure out if it fits my use case...)

Nope that’s only if you want to use dask @Jorge

Thanks for the info 😊. So is it correct to say that prefect cloud is a SAAS instance of prefect core? (Where I can run flows locally or use an executor to talk to something bigger like dask)
And prefect server is a part of prefect core? (additionally to the postgres, graphql and other bits that get instantiated)

I think that’s a fair characterization. Prefect Cloud is a hosted and managed version of Prefect Server which also includes security and team-centric tools like auth, token management, teams (and team management), audit trails, and read only users.
If you’re just getting started, Prefect Cloud’s free version is what I’d recommend; it really simplifies the process and lets you get started writing and executing workflows right away, without worrying about server deployment and networking.
