Optimize your data transfer costs with Elastigroup’s Preferred AZs

We’re excited to announce that you can now minimize your data transfer costs with Preferred AZs (Link to API) by selecting the optimal Spot instances across several Availability Zones based on both Spot pricing and data transfer costs.

In the past, if you opted to run your EC2 instances in the same AZ to minimize data transfer costs, you’d suffer from availability issues in the case where EC2 was not available or EC2 Spot suddenly suffered from lack of capaity.

Now you can run EC2 Instances in your preferred AZ, and when capacity isn’t available, Spotinst Elastigroup will seamlessly scale additional EC2 capacity in your alternative AZs to maximize your availability and savings.

Get started with preferred Availability Zones from the Spotinst console here.
