Restricting to AWS availability zones for reserved instances


(Geoff Bowers) #1

AWS reserved instances have to be nominated in a specific availability zone (AZ). It’s handy that Docker Cloud automatically spins up nodes in different AZ but now that our local region has 3 zones it’s harder to make sure we have reservations in the right locations.

It would be helpful to be able to nominate a set of specific AZ that Docker Cloud will scale nodes into.

You could perhaps achieve this by having node clusters assigned to their respective AZ? I realize this would double or even triple the clusters, however.
