The options for Spot Instances.




Type: Integer

Required: No


The behavior when a Spot Instance is interrupted. The default is terminate.

Type: String

Valid Values: hibernate | stop | terminate

Required: No


The maximum hourly price that you're willing to pay for a Spot Instance. We do not recommend using this parameter because it can lead to increased interruptions. If you do not specify this parameter, you will pay the current Spot price.


If you specify a maximum price, your Spot Instances will be interrupted more frequently than if you do not specify this parameter.

Type: String

Required: No


The Spot Instance request type. For RunInstances, persistent Spot Instance requests are only supported when the instance interruption behavior is either hibernate or stop.

Type: String

Valid Values: one-time | persistent

Required: No


The end date of the request, in UTC format (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ). Supported only for persistent requests.

  • For a persistent request, the request remains active until the ValidUntil date and time is reached. Otherwise, the request remains active until you cancel it.

  • For a one-time request, ValidUntil is not supported. The request remains active until all instances launch or you cancel the request.
