I couldn't find much documentation on Elastic Bamboo's support for EC2 Spot instances, other than the fact that it's "supported." Will a build fail when an EC2 spot instance is dropped due to being outbid? My image configuration specifies an instance type of "small" to spin up (using a stock AMI). If I bid on a Large and Extra Large instance will it use the same stock AMI?
Thanks in advance!
No, there's no backup plan. We use spot instances all the time (hundreds per day) and we don't get many false negatives.
If you don't set up the bid level for small, set up bid levels for other instances and specify a long spot instance fallback, the result should be more or less what you want.
