  • Amazon EC2 spot instances: Specify a bid price for a specific instance type that you want to provision using the SpotPrice property
  • Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS)
    • Create a name for an ECS service cluster
    • Specify the IAM role that ECS should use to call AWS APIs on your behalf
    • Register a task definition to a specific family
