Spotinst is once more teaming up with Amazic for an afternoon of tech talk and hands-on teaching from one of Spotinst's top Solution Architects. Over the course of this workshop, you'll learn how to run mission critical applications on Spot instances safely, lowering costs by as much as 80% whilst suffering no drop in availability.

Pavel Klushin will lead the workshop and demonstrate how to run mission critical workloads on Spot instances, using Spotinst's platform to challenge the existing conceptions of Spot. Pavel will guide attendees through the account creation process, explaining some key use cases and talking integrations with Terraform, Ansible and more. 

There'll also be a chance to relax, have a cool beer and chat.

After the workshop, attendees will know how to migrate applications to Spot instances, how these migrations work with different integrations and best practices for making mission critical run on Spot.
