Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) now available for EC2 Spot

We are happy to announce that base Red Hat Enterprise Linux Images (AMIs) are now available for Spotinst Elastigroup on supported instance types.

Whereas so far Spot instances were only supported for users of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Premium subscription, AWS has recently added support for the basic subscription model.

Now, users can make use of the leading open-source enterprise-grade OS, while leveraging the benefits of Spotinst Elastigroup to automate the provisioning and management of workloads and optimize costs with EC2 Spot instances, allowing for savings of up to 90% of the On-Demand prices.
