Spot VMs are priced up to 91% off regular instances. They show up on your bill separately so you'll see just how much you're saving.
Attach GPUs and local SSDs to Spot instances for additional performance and savings.
Compute Engine gives you 30 seconds to shut down when you're preempted, letting you save your work in progress for later.
Spin up as many instances as you need and turn them off when you're done. You only pay for what you use.
Quickly reclaim capacity
Managed instance groups automatically recreate your instances when they're preempted (if capacity is available).
Save even more by specifying a maximum run duration and define how instances clean up after themselves on preemption or exceeding the maximum run duration
