Hard to argue with this value proposition

Spotinst has the best pricing model I've ever encountered; they charge you a percentage (20% at time of review) of what they save you vs on-demand pricing.

I had already implemented EC2 Spot Fleets and autoscaling rules on my ECS cluster before coming across Spotinst. I was hitting myriad edge cases and scaling issues, and the development teams I supported were not particularly happy with my choice to use Spot instead of On-Demand; they don't care about cost as much as I do. I wanted that ~55% savings but the cluster was simply not scaling to our expectations.

Switching to a Spotinst-managed Elastigroup was trivial. There was no minimum commitment. They take over all scaling. I was still able to define the cluster in Terraform, thankfully. I've only had a couple scaling issues so far, both of which were scaling *down* issues, and that's nothing compared to the couple issues *per week* I had with my own autoscaling rules previously.

Now we're savings 59% off of list price, PLUS we are saving a lot more than that by running fewer total instance hours because it's a more efficient, more responsive cluster.

I recommend Elastigroup (ECS) and Stateful Instances. Ocean ECS is a comparable product to Elastigroup, but still a bit too young. Eco is also a great offering if you purchase RIs.
