Optimize your EC2 costs by up to 90%, scale your application throughput by up to 10x and build a resilient service.

Amazon EC2 Spot instances are compute instances provided from the spare pooled capacity of On-Demand EC2 infrastructure, offered with low, predictable prices - discounted upto 90% on the On-Demand instance prices - with a caveat of these instances being "interruptible" after a 2 min notification, if Amazon needs to pull back the Spot instances capacity to serve On-Demand customers.

In this session delivered by Spot Specialist teams from Amazon, learn how customers are using EC2 Spot instances - not just as an attractive low cost purchase model for Cloud computing resources - but as an architectural approach to run applications with highly scalable compute resources, while working with instance interruptions to improve the resilience of their application services.
