Full RI Utilization

Ongoing analysis, modification and mapping of unused RIs to instances running On-Demand, ensures you maximize ROI on your prepaid infra investments.

Managed RI Lifecycle

With comprehensive analysis of compute workloads, RI buying and selling in the AWS Marketplace is automated to ensure your workloads are running at optimal pricing.

Finance & DevOps Synergy

With full visibility into compute consumption and automation of optimal RI strategies, Finance and DevOps teams can easily collaborate on managing cloud cost.

Zero Engineering Effort

Reserved Instances 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 Spotinst Eco will continually track usage as well as build forecasting models to constantly manage the lifecycle of RIs for you.

One of the most important aspects of any RI Portfolio is the initial inception. Ensuring your RI fleet is well built from the start will determine your path to savings in the future.  That said, Eco will work with any existing RI portfolio and build strategies for any situation.

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 RI Strategies to ensure that capacity purchases are always covering as much compute resources as possible.

Diversify Commitment 

Reserved Instances lower the hourly cost of compute, but come with a contractual commitment anywhere from one to three years. Spotinst’s Eco acts as an RI broker, utilizing the AWS MarketPlace, to mix and match commitment lengths with optimal utilization and as much financial flexibility as possible.

Spotinst Marketplace Community

Spotinst manages hundreds of accounts and hundreds of thousands of Reserved Instances. This customer base and acquired knowledge help Spotinst Eco to quickly match customers who have immediate needs to buy and sell reservations on the Marketplace, acting as a perfect RI Broker for private deals as well.  This enables Spotinst 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.

Full Lifecycle Management

Anyone can make recommendations, Eco takes action. Eco actively manages the planning, purchasing and reselling of RIs. The market is continuously monitored for relevant opportunities and terms are intentionally staggered to provide the best flexibility with the future in mind.

Perfect RI Capacity Planning

What makes Eco unique is the way it blends different types of RIs to take advantage of the unique strengths each offer. Eco will mix a blend of Standard and Convertible RIs with varying term lengths to provide coverage for each area of your cloud usage. Taking in factors such as flexibility, market volume, historical and predicted usage, Eco identifies the correct blend to maximize savings while providing the most flexibility to handle future needs.  

Just in Time RIs

By creating a well-balanced mix of RIs, Eco aims to always have portions of your reservations expiring or up for renewal at any given time. This continuous, natural reduction of RI commitment levels allows for constant modifications to your RI strategy to adapt to changing needs and usage.
