Amazon EC2 的 Spot Instance 可以「接關」了：「New – Stop & Resume Workloads on EC2 Spot Instances」。
當 Spot Instance 的競價不足以標到機器時，他會先關起來 (Stop)，等到價錢低於競價後就會再打開機器，這時候的狀態就會恢復。另外也提到了必須是使用 EBS 的機器才支援：
Amazon EC2 Spot now allows Amazon EBS-backed instances to be stopped in the event of interruption, instead of being terminated when capacity is no longer available at your preferred price. Spot can then fulfill your request by restarting instances from a stopped state when capacity is available within your price and time requirements.
用法是把 Spot Instance 的關機設定設為 Stop：
To use this new feature, choose “stop” instead of “terminate” as the interruption behavior when submitting a persistent Spot request. When you choose “stop”, Spot will shut down your instance upon interruption.
恢復的時候就會儘量保持一樣地開回來 (連 instance id 都相同)：
When capacity is available again within your price and time requirements, Spot will restart your instance. Upon restart, the EBS root device is restored from its prior state, previously attached data volumes are reattached, and the instance retains its instance ID.
