Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video Purchasing options: Spot and dedicated, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting IaaS Products.
- [Instructor] Now let's talk about kind of a bidding game,…if you will, like you're bidding on a particular price.…These are called Spot Instances,…and you can kind of think of this…as like the spot price of gold…or the spot price of something else.…It's an instance that you will bid on…in terms of when it will run.…You'll actually be able to declare…what price you're willing to pay.…And then if the bid is taken,…your instance will come online.…This is so that Amazon could utilize some…of the random unutilized processing capability…within their infrastructure…so that it doesn't just get wasted.…
There's a two-minute warning that you're given…before your instance is terminated.…And really in many cases, that's fine,…especially for projects where it doesn't really matter…if there's an interruption…because you're doing parallel processing…or you've got things like message queuing…or things of that nature…where you can spread the workload across multiple machines,…and that particular workload is really tolerant…to machines crashing or failing and things of that nature.…
