This Quick Start deploys Spotinst Ocean for Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 10 minutes. This Quick Start is for users who want to scale Amazon EKS clusters efficiently while optimizing for performance and cost by leveraging a variety of instance types and sizes running as Spot Instances.

With Spotinst Ocean, you can run multiple instance types and sizes, sharing the same configuration or using different configurations, within the Amazon EKS cluster. Spotinst Ocean then leverages the variety of instances with a prediction algorithm to choose the best Spot instances for you in terms of price and availability and to predict the Spot Instance interruption 15 minutes ahead of time. When an interruption is predicted, Ocean immediately spins up a new node in a different Spot capacity pool.
