Just deployed my first installation of the AutoSpotting tool… It took only 3 minutes and 5 clicks and now I’m saving 60% of my EC2 cost with Spot instances automagically. Kudos Sir!

After I saw you made the RunInstances API call I generally cheered with so much joy! Thank you for such an amazing tool, you have the best open source project that I’ve ever had the pleasure to use.

I recently launched Autospotting to help with our deployments that can’t use fleets. It’s been working really well.

We’re making use of an awesome little open source tool called autospotting. In a nutshell, it will automatically replace an on-demand instance in our ASG’s when a cheaper spot instance is available.
