RightScale and Spotinst Partner to Automate the Use of Amazon EC2 Spot Instances to Save Enterprises Money

March 8 Webinar Will Explore Innovative Techniques to Leverage Spot Instances

Santa Barbara, CA — March 7, 2017 — RightScale® Inc., a demonstrated leader in enterprise universal cloud management, today announced a partnership and integration with Spotinst, the leading workload management platform for Amazon EC2.

Amazon EC2 Spot instances allow companies to bid on spare AWS EC2 computing capacity. Since Amazon EC2 Spot instances are often available at a discount compared to On-Demand pricing, enterprises can significantly reduce the cost of running applications by as much as 80-90 percent.

RightScale has integrated Spotinst Elastigroup into RightScale Cloud Management and will resell Elastigroup to RightScale customers looking to maximize their use of Spot Instances.

“The combination of RightScale and the Spotinst Platform made it easier and more efficient to integrate Amazon EC2 Spot instances into our cloud infrastructure, specifically into our Elastic Container Service (ECS) running our containerized environments, saving us significant time and money,” said Matt Wise, senior systems architect at Nextdoor.com.

“We are excited to combine RightScale’s established Cloud Management Platform (CMP) and cost management capabilities with Spotinst’s premier EC2 Spot instance workload management platform,” said Amiram Shachar, founder and CEO of Spotinst. “Over the past year, RightScale has been recognized by analysts, media, and a number of customers as having the most powerful Cloud Management Platform in the industry. By integrating Spotinst into the RightScale CMP, RightScale customers can more easily realize large savings opportunities in their EC2 workloads, through highly available, automated spot instance management.”
