Spotinst Ocean Cluster Roll gave you the ability to manually roll your cluster with a single click, replacing instances in a “blue-green” manner while taking into consideration the actual workloads (Kubernetes Pods/ECS Tasks) which are running in the cluster. 

Today, we are pleased to announce that you can now schedule Cluster Rolls to occur at any time most convenient to you. 

One popular use case is for Google Preemtible VMs which are automatically terminated every 24 hours. Google Cloud customers can now proactively schedule a cluster roll on a daily basis, at the precise time that suits them. This ensures for a graceful process with high availability, where new nodes are spun up and the pods rescheduled, without any pressure of a sudden termination.
