Stop Paying for Idle Compute Instances

By using Elastigroup scheduler you can simply schedule on/off times for your idle cloud computing services. It might be one of your Test or Development environments or just a service that you don’t use 24/7.



Floating 6_floating-elastic-ipsElastic IPs

Elastigroup allows you to create a Floating Elastic IP address, which will be associated with the instances that are in your group. In case of a failure, the elastic IP address will be re-associate immediately with another active Spot server in the group.

Simply use Floating Elastic IPs from the Create / Edit Elastic group wizard, under launch specification.



IAM Role

You can now launch an Elastigroup and easily associate IAM role with the instances. It’s available for use via the Elastigroup create/edit wizard under the launch specification section.



Health Check

Elasticgroup periodically performs health checks on the instances in your groups and identifies any instances that are unhealthy. After Elasticgroup marks an instance as unhealthy, it is scheduled for replacement. Start using it today from the Elasticgroup Create / Edit wizard or via the API
