Launching AWS EC2 Spot Instances

User 1319 | 9/17/2015, 6:56:45 AM

Is it possible to launch Amazon EC2 Spot instances to execute GraphLab jobs? Can I use manually launched (from AWS Dashboard) Spot Instances to execute GraphLab jobs remotely (without installing GraphLab on the EC2 instance, which limits you to one instance only)?

Currently, we do not support spot instances for jobs but we are planning to add it soon. A few other users have asked us for this feature request.
