AWS Fargate now supports Fargate Spot, a new deployment option on AWS Fargate to run fault-tolerant applications with up to 70% discount compared to Fargate prices. Starting today, Fargate Spot is supported for applications orchestrated by Amazon ECS.  

ECS tasks running on Fargate Spot leverage spare compute capacity available in the AWS cloud. Fargate Spot is ideal for fault-tolerant use cases such as big data, CI/CD, and batch processing. Customers now get the simplicity of serverless containers with familiar cost optimization levers available with Amazon EC2.  

More information on Fargate Spot can be found here. Pricing information for Fargate Spot is available on the Fargate Pricing Page.
