Abstract

Amazon Web Services since early 2009 is offering its spare capacity at a discounted price. This discount comes at the price of unpredicted price changes and sudden instance termination. In this paper, we are presenting a solution to one of the challenges when using AWS Spot Instances, that is Termination of the instance on short notice.

Presented in this paper, Spot Instance Management System (SimS) can effectively manage spot instances and keep up the availability on the desired level. Thanks to machine learning, risk assessment mechanism and proactive actions system can assure required three nines SLA. The results are showing that usage of a proactive system like SimS proves to be valuable if our main goals are low running costs and availability of the systems running on the spot instances.
