    In Elastic group , if I configure the cluster orientation as Availability and Spot percentage as 100% . How are the spot instances maintained internally ?

    Hi Bala,


    While using the high availability orientation an Elastigroup will abstain from replacing spot instances due to interruptions or cost optimization for as long as possible. Additionally, in the case of fall back to On-Demand instances - the Elastigroup will keep these instances running and will not revert back to spot instances automatically (as it does with balanced and cost orientations).


    The Availability orientation use case is primarily suitable for  "jobs" or "batch" computing with high importance of a single machine running for a limited amount of time.
