Spot Virtual Machines

Affordable compute instances suitable for batch jobs and fault-tolerant workloads.

With Spot VMs, you can run batch jobs and fault-tolerant workloads at a very affordable cost. The same machine types, options, and performance are available for Spot VMs as they are for regular compute instances. Spot VMs are cheaper than regular instances by up to 91%. With no more than once-a-month price changes and a minimum 60% off guarantee, you get price stability.

You can use Spot instances in conjunction with your regular virtual machines to complete your computation-intensive tasks faster and save money. Spot VMs are ideal for fault-tolerant workloads like high-performance computing, big data, analytics, continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), rendering, and transcoding.

Key Features

The key features of spot VMs offered by Cyfuture Cloud are listed below:

  • #

    Low Pricing

    The price of spot VMs is up to 90% lower than that of regular instances. Seeing how much you're saving is easy when they appear separately on your bill.

  • #

    Easy Extendability

    Additional performance and savings can be achieved by combining GPUs and local SSDs with Spot instances.

  • #

    Graceful shutdown

    When preempted, Compute Engine lets you save your work in progress for later by giving you 30 seconds to shut down.

  • #

    Large-Scale Computing

    If you need more instances, spin them up and turn them off when you're finished. The only thing you pay for is what you use.

  • #

    Quickly Reclaim Capacity

    As soon as your instances are preempted (if capacity is available), they are automatically recreated.

  • #

    Control Costs

    Increase your savings by specifying a maximum run duration and defining how instances clean up after themselves if they are preempted or exceeded.

How do Spot VMs work?

Using the Cyfuture Cloud Console, users can create, configure, and deploy spot VMs across Cyfuture Cloud's regions.

An eviction policy is defined and price controls are determined when creating a Spot VM. If compute capacity becomes available, Spot VMs are automatically evicted to a stopped-deallocated state, allowing them to be deployed later. If you want to permanently remove a virtual machine, you can change the eviction policy to delete.

In addition to capacity, you can also evict VMs based on the maximum price that you set. The spot pricing for Cyfuture Cloud increases when other customers request more compute. As long as your maximum price is set, your VMs will be terminated if the cost exceeds your limit.

Using Cyfuture Cloud spot instances is just like running any other Windows or Linux virtual machine and is just like using a pay-as-you-go or reserved instance on the cloud.


Spot VMs Considerations

The following characteristics should be considered when considering Spot VMs for your workloads to minimize operating costs:

  • The Cyfuture Cloud does not offer any SLA for Spot VMs
  • There is only a 30-second warning period before termination
  • Spot VMs are terminated based on capacity availability and your configured maximum price
  • Availability varies by region, size, and time of day
