Currently, when you work with EC2 Spot Instances you are only allowed to reboot or terminate an instance. This is not an issue for stateless applications as they are designed to easily scale horizontally. If you have a stateful application or an application that is designed to withstand node failure such as a database cluster then you may have decided in the past that Spot instances were not the best use case for you. Today we are excited to announce the launch of our new Stateful Spot service. This new service will finally allow you to utilize Spot Instances and save up to 80% on your EC2 Stateful environment.
