Our Background

More than a decade ago Spotinst’s team members took their first steps as young programmers in MAMRAM, the elite technology unit of the Israel Defense Forces (“IDF”). They served in key positions related to Linux Kernel, RDBMS and C4I systems. They were in charge of the IDF’s “nerve center”, which runs all of its Operations and Virtualization systems.

After their discharge from the IDF, Spotinst’s team members joined leading companies in the computing industry, managing DevOps and Software engineering programs, while building and maintaining large scale cloud architectures.

Simultaneously, the Spotinst team members received computer science degrees from Israel’s top universities, while working under senior technology executives of Israel’s leading high tech companies. This team of computer experts decided to dedicate their final project to the field of maximum utilization and the spot instances AWS bidding system.

As part of their academic research, the Spotinst team members reached out to pioneering professors who already had breakthrough insights to fully leverage the cloud’s high availability and scalability capabilities. Not by chance, they were awarded First Place in their final academic projects.

The Spotinst team brings to the table extensive experience with “Big Data” and its ecosystem (Google, BigQuery/Hadoop and Map Reduce jobs), providing out of the box solutions for Big Data challenges, especially in the AWS. The academicians on the team contribute their knowledge of Game Theory and sophisticated algorithms, as well as deep analytic skills to help them crack formulas together.

Since then, Spotinst’s team has been busy helping customers save up to 90% off their computing costs – from scientific computing, rendering, financial simulation, hadoop, spark, mesos to web tiers, caching tiers and more.

Our vision is to revolutionize the way DevOps and R&D teams distribute their computing capacity. It doesn’t matter if your infrastructure runs on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure or even a VMware on a private cloud. Spotinst provides the optimal framework for computer provisioning, optimisation and cost-effective utilization.

We believe that the Amazon Spot market represents what we refer to as the “real cloud” – a dynamic environment that supports the balance between required resource availability and its price, considering supply and demand.
