EC2 Auto-Scaling with Spot-Pricing

Hi Guys,

I am doing Auto-Scaling Indexing in EC2. In that we create normal EC2 instances.

There is one feature in EC2 for Spot-Price instance.

Can we configure instances with Spot-Price in existing library for AutoScaling.

Is there any other library of Amazon for Spot-Price ?



No, currently the built-in EC2AutoScaler only supports on-demand and reserved instances.

Thanks for reply.

Is there any possibility in future on EC2 side ?

There aren’t specific plans but feel free to file a GitHub issue at If you’re comfortable writing Java code, we would also welcome a pull request!
