Product Overview

Looking to reduce your AWS costs without sacrificing performance or uptime?

AutoSpotting automatically converts expensive On-Demand instances in your stateless Autoscaling groups (ASGs) to more cost-effective and performant Spot instances, reliably and without any configuration changes.

Results and Pricing

For each $1000 worth of capacity that AutoSpotting can convert to Spot it typically generates about $500-600 of savings (results may vary depending on the current Spot pricing for your instances). It will automatically charge you a tenth of the savings, so about $50-60, through the next AWS bill.

We also have a perpetual free tier for evaluating it on small instances such as T3/T4g nano or micro, for as long as your Spot savings remain below $0.01/hour.

What AutoSpotting does for you

  • Reduces your AWS costs: AutoSpotting replaces On-Demand instances with cheaper but identically configured Spot instances, saving you money.
  • Requires no configruaton changes: It can take over all your groups from all regions, and even across AWS Organizations or just enable/disable it temporarily, without requiring changes for every single group.
  • Increases Spot uptime: Your Spot instances are diversified across families and generations of the 600+ available instance types, resulting in fewer Spot terminations and increased uptime compared to alternative solutions.
  • Runs cheaper and newest instances available: AutoSpotting prioritizes instance types in a way that optimizes for cost savings, uptime, and preferring newer hardware for more performance and a lower carbon footprint.
  • Avoids user impact: in the event of Spot terminations AutoSpotting gracefully drains your load balancer connections and launches new Spot instances as early as possible to avoid production impact.
  • Gives you the capacity you need: when Spot capacity is not available AutoSpotting automatically launches diversified on-demand instances to ensure you always have capacity in your groups.
  • Gives you visibility into your savings: You can conveniently estimate savings before installing AutoSpotting, and receive regular savings reports to see how much it saves you once you use it.
