General Availability: Azure Spot on Azure Kubernetes Service
Published date: 28 October, 2020
Generate significant savings on compute costs for workloads that can tolerate interruptions with Azure Spot support for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
Scenarios such as batch processing and machine learning often do not require guaranteed, on-demand compute availability. In those cases, customers may prefer to run their workloads only when compute is available at a particular cost. With Azure Spot, you can leverage lower-cost compute based on its availability within a given Azure region and pull that compute into an AKS cluster for scheduling containerized workloads. When coupled with the cluster autoscaler, evicted compute capacity can often be replaced within minutes, ensuring limited disruption.
