AWS reserved instances

(Saskselkirksystems) #1

Can i specify the amazon reserved instance when creating a node? or do I have to use bring your own node in that case?

If I have to use BYON, is there an AMI I should use?

Reserved instances are just a type for a region, the specific node doesn’t matter.

Just make sure you pick the right deployment settings to match your reserved instance. Such as Node size, availability zone.

Think of the reserved instances more as an accounting thing, less about the exact instance.
