The deal will help our customers to combine the use of Reserved capacity and Spot Instances in the most effective way, to achieve dramatic savings to offer every enterprise the full range of options to make smart purchasing decisions about their cloud infrastructure,” said Amiram Shachar, Founder and CEO of Spotinst.
