Zero Engineering Effort
Reserved Instances and Savings Plans are purely a pricing model for EC2, RDS and other AWS services. Engineers don’t have to change anything about compute specifications or applications they use today. Once enabled Eco by Spot will continually track usage as well as build forecasting models to constantly manage your RI and Savings Plans lifecycle.
One of the most important aspects of any RI Portfolio is the initial inception. Ensuring your Reserved Instance and Savings Plan fleet is well built from the start will determine your path to savings in the future. That said, Eco will work with any existing commitments portfolio to build strategies for ever-changing cloud usage.
Respond to Changes in Utilization
Lowering the hourly cost of compute is great, but what if compute demands change? Eco constantly monitors accounts for changes and will actively execute Reserved Instance Strategies to ensure that capacity purchases are always covering as much compute resources as possible.
Reserved Instances and Savings Plans lower the hourly cost of compute, but come with a contractual commitment of one or three years. Eco acts as a cloud brokerage engine, utilizing the AWS MarketPlace, to mix and match commitment lengths with optimal utilization and as much financial flexibility as possible.
Spot.io Marketplace Community
Spot manages thousands of accounts and hundreds of thousands of Reserved Instances. This customer base and acquired knowledge help Eco to quickly match customers who have immediate needs to buy and sell reservations on the Marketplace, acting as a perfect broker for private deals as well. This enables Spot to understand and control market liquidity even before listing.
Forecast Powered by Machine Learning
As smart as a human can be, forecasting cloud commitment in an increasingly complicated cloud environment is inefficient, even when using the best reporting tools available. Inefficiencies arise even for the most talented teams. Eco continually analyzes millions of data points to identify the makeup of your ideal RI fleet.
