Amazon EC2 Fleet simplifies the provisioning of EC2 capacity across different instance types, Availability Zones (AZs), and purchase options to optimize for scale, performance, and cost. Allocation strategies let you determine how EC2 Fleet should select from the instance types and AZs you have specified to fulfill the desired capacity.

Starting today, you can also provide a maximum total price for your EC2 Fleet, enabling you to control the total price you pay per hour for the fleet of instances. When you provide a maximum price, EC2 Fleet will attempt to fulfill all your desired capacity, but will stop provisioning instances before exceeding your maximum fleet price. In other words, when using maximum total price, EC2 Fleet will stop fulfilling instances when either your target capacity or total price is met.

Amazon EC2 Fleet and Target Maximum Price is available in all public Regions.
