Use Spot/Preemptible Instances


## Overview Depending on your project location, DataSTAGE powered by Seven Bridges is using the appropriate cloud provider (Google Cloud and AWS) spare capacity resources at a significant discount. If your project is set on some of the available **Google Cloud locations**, this option will be marked as **Preemptible instances** on the visual interface. If your project is set on some of the available **AWS locations**, this option will be marked as **Spot instances** on the visual interface. The setting can be applied at the project and task level, with the latter overriding the former. Data Cruncher will still use on-demand instances when running, even if the Spot/Preemptible Instance feature is turned on for that project. When creating a new project (AWS location), the default setting for Spot Instances is **On**. When creating a new project (Google Cloud location), the default setting for Preemptible Instances is **Off**. ## Activate Spot/Preemptible Instances for a Project [Only project administrators](doc:modify-project-settings) can activate Spot/Preemptible Instances within that project. Spot/Preemptible Instances can be activated while [creating a project](doc:create-a-project), or subsequently within project settings following the procedure below: 1. Go to your project dashboard. 2. Click the **Settings** tab. 3. Under **Execution Settings** switch **Spot/Preemptible Instances** to **On**. ## Activate Spot/Preemptible Instances for a Draft Task Note that settings at task level override project-level settings. 1. [Create a draft task](doc:run-a-task#section-1-create-draft-task) 2. On the draft task page, switch **Spot/Preemptible Instances** to **On** underneath the draft task title. ## View Spot/Preemptible Instance Settings for an Executed Task An executed task set to use Spot/Preemptible Instances will be labelled **Spot/Preemptible Instances: On** on the task page underneath the task title. On the [task stats page](doc:view-task-stats) you get a more detailed view of the executed task, with a job-wise breakdown of the instances used. Jobs that ran on Spot/Preemptible Instances are labelled **spot/preemptible** next to the instance name.
