Spot Market

Bid on discounted excess infrastructure across all of our facilities and configurations, and save up to 80%!

If you thrive on portability and automation, and have tried to manage your costs at AWS, then you probably know all about spot markets!   In short: we deploy extra hardware and sell it at a fraction of the retail cost to help cover our risk.  The catch? Well, when we need it back we revoke it.

Packet's spot market works similarly to the AWS marketplace - you place a bid and expiration date for that bid when deploying spot instances,

  • The first dynamic spot market for bare metal compute.
