Why “Spotmark?” Traders have long referred to “spot” markets for real-time trading of commodities. As cloud computing increasingly resembles a commodity utility, providers like Amazon and Google have begun to offer real-time pricing of spare cloud computing resources. In exchange for deep discounts, a cloud provider reserves the right to reclaim (or “kill”) an instance at any time. Solano Spotmark takes care of the additional work required to take advantage of these “spare cycles” — staying up to date with providers’ changes in infrastructure and pricing, optimizing bidding and pricing for the lowest cost for work performed, and providing infrastructure to automate restarting computations when instances are reclaimed.

Solano Spotmark can help you reduce you get the most out of your cloud spend:
