What is Spot?

Spot is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) feature that offers discounted EC2 instances for fault-tolerant workloads. Amazon will provide the user with an EC2 server, but may reclaim the server with two minutes of warning. This means any workload running on a Spot server might get moved to a different server with only two minutes of warning from AWS.

How does this work on Tembo Cloud?

Tembo Cloud offers the Spot option for running at a cheaper cost. Tembo charges 30% less for CPU and Memory on instances with Spot enabled. If Spot instances are not available from AWS, Tembo will automatically move your servers with Spot enabled to an on-demand EC2 instance with no additional charge.

Tembo Apps associated with your instance will also run on Spot when Spot is enabled.

The downtime associated with a Spot relocation is typically less than 10 minutes, usually 3-5 minutes when High Availability is disabled.
