AWS re:Invent 2016: Save up to 90% and Run Production Workloads on Spot (CMP307)


Amazon EC2 allows you to bid for and run spare EC2 capacity, known as Spot instances, in a dynamically priced market. On average, customers save 80% to 90% compared to On Demand prices by using Spot instances. Achieving these savings has historically required time and effort to find the best deals while managing compute capacity as supply and demand fluctuate.

In this session, we dive into how customers who have designed scalable, cloud friendly application architectures can leverage new Spot features to realize immediate cost savings while maintaining availability. Attendees will leave with practical knowledge of how, via well architected applications, they can run production services on the Spot instances just like IFTTT and Mapbox.
