- My instances require data persistence, how is that possible with Spot replacements?
For a single-instance or any workload that require data persistence, Elastigroup provides continuous and automated Snapshot functionality that captures the instance storage and enables to recover from the latest checkpoint.
- How does AMI auto-backup work? How many snapshots do you keep?
AMI auto-backup creates, by default, 3 backups of your AMI. If the backup mode is set to “Continuous” (in compute tab in Elastigroup’s configuration) it will create a new snapshot with any change to the image. Upon Spot replacement, Elastigroup will recover from the latest snapshot automatically.
If you want to save more (or less) than 3 backups, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
