AWS Solutions Architect Associate Cert Prep Part 8: Auto-scaling with Spot Instances

This is the next lab in the series where we take a look at auto-scaling to EC2 Spot instances. On Azure we don’t have an equivalent of Spot Instances.

I recorded this lab so that others might experience it in a more passive way if they so chose. This video is a straight shot with no editing whatsoever so you’ll get all my hims and haws.

This lab will demonstrate how to:

  • Setup auto-scaling to launch Spot Instances when the Spot price is low.
  • Incorporate CloudWatch metrics to monitor your instances
  • Scale down and terminate your Spot Instances when computational work has run for a specified period of time.
