Elastigroup for Microsoft Azure
Reliably run Production and Mission Critical applications
at 80% less of your Azure infrastructure costs
Spotinst is a leading provider of cloud software that enables companies to reliably run production and mission critical applications in Azure’s Compute Spot Market (aka Low Priority VMs).
Microsoft Azure Low-priority VMsMicrosoft Azure Low-priority VMs Low-priority VMs are allocated from Microsoft Azure's excess compute capacity, enabling workloads to run for a significantly reduced cost or allowing companies to capture 5x more compute capacity for the same budget.
Low-priority VMs' AnatomyWith Low-priority VMs, Microsoft effectively lets you "borrow" and take advantage of unused capacity for a great price. However, they can reclaim these VMs at any given moment due to higher priority allocations. Microsoft grants access to their spare capacity in each region. The amount of spare capacity varies by region and VM size according to multiple factors, including day of week, time of day, and demand for different VM sizes.
The Elastigroup Platform
Elastigroup is a software that provisions and manages a collection of Azure VMs. Elastigroup leverages historical data and prediction algorithms to identify and predict VMs that are about to be “interrupted”. Prior to termination, Elastigroup automatically and seamlessly transitions applications to the least expensive “available” Instances with absolutely no downtime regardless of application type or demand.
