AWS offers Reserved Instances which are On-Demand Instances available at a discount and this can afford customers significant savings with deterministic and scheduled processing tasks. Reserved instances are specific to an Availability Zone.
Using Reserved Instances in Qubole
Qubole can leverage Reserved Instances whenever an On-Demand Instance is requested in Qubole if the following criteria are satisfied:
- Instance Type in Qubole is the same as the Reserved Instance Type.
- Availability Zone in Qubole is the same as the Availability Instance for the Reserved Instance Type.
If the above are satisfied then Qubole will automatically use the Reserved Instance when the On-Demand Instance is requested.
