AutoSpotting makes it easy and quick to get up to 90% costs savings for stateless applications in AutoScaling groups. It safely converts them to Spot instances without configuration changes.
Workloads that scale up and down daily, which can't be effectively covered by Savings Plans or Reserved Instances.
When is it not desirable to have the long term commitments of Reserved Instances and Savings Plans.
Achieve highest possible cost savings without capital intensive 3-year all-upfront payments.
Where the conversion to Spot (and back to On Demand) is desirable to be performed reliably but without configuration changes on each group, such as on large organizations or legacy environments.
AutoSpotting has been used by thousands of companies, non-profits and government agencies. In aggregate its users saved more than $100.000.000 since its launch in 2016. Below you can see just a few of its users.
And here's what some of them had to say about AutoSpotting:
AutoSpotting makes it easy to adopt Spot instances in existing AutoScaling groups, without any changes to their launch template or launch configuration.
Once installed in minutes using CloudFormation or Terraform, you just need to tag your AutoScaling groups with "spot-enabled", set to "true".
AutoSpotting will take over such tagged groups and gradually replace their instances with similar or bigger Spot instances.
Here you can a little video that explains it in more detail.
Uses a diversified list of Spot instance types ordered by price.
Costs limited to those of your initial configuration.
Supports any workloads running on AutoScaling groups.
Including for services like EKS, ECS, Beanstalk, etc..
Runs Spot instances as big or bigger than the initial instances.
Instance types selection prefers newer instance type generations.
Avoids instances with increased risk of interruptions.
Reduces instance churn as much as possible and maximizes uptime.
Unlike most alternatives, ir runs entirely in your AWS account.
There is no SaaS backend that knows everything you're running.
Uses the minimal set of IAM permissions required for it to work.
Full source code can be made available for audit purposes.
Can keep a percentage or number of on-demand instances running.
Start small and expand gradually, when you're confident enough.
Unlike plain Spot ASGs, you will not run with reduced capacity.
OnDemand instances are launched and replaced with Spot later.
Requires no paperwork or even credit card.
You're charged automatically through your AWS bill.
Install in less than 5 minutes using CloudFormation or Terraform.
