Hi, "Well, in that case the whole notion of reservation is moot since you’re running all the time anyway!" Even if the aim is to run them all the time, you may still need to replace them with new instances due to various reasons. If the cluster has enough redundancy and there are insufficient capacity errors, one can take down existing instances in order to replace them with new ones without being afraid of others getting the available instances first. Sure, quite hypothetical. :) "I wish I could just buy the discount without the availability guarantee and without the tie to a specific zone!" Definitely agree. Best, Ismael
