Abstract: A few years ago, Amazon Web Services introduced spot instances, transient servers that can be contracted at a significant discount over regular price, but whose availability depends on cloud provider criteria and the instance can be revoked at any time. Google Cloud Platform offers preemptive instances, transient servers that have similar behavior and discount level to spot instances. Both providers advertise that their transient servers have the same performance level as servers contracted on-demand. Even with the possibility of revocation at the provider’s discretion, some applications can benefit from the low prices charged by these servers. But the measured performance of both models, transient and on-demand, must be similar, and the applications must survive occasional or mass server revoking. This work compares the performance and costs of transient and on-demand servers from both providers. Results show there is no significant difference in performance measured, but th ere is real cost advantage using transient servers. On Amazon Web Services a MapReduce cluster composed of transient servers achieved a 68% discount when compared to the same cluster based on on-demand servers. On Google Cloud Platform, the discount achieved was 26% but it can be bigger when the clusters are larger. (More)
