When you use Spot instances, you must be prepared for interruptions.

Amazon EC2 can interrupt your Spot instance when the Spot price exceeds your maximum price, when the demand for Spot instances rises, or when the capacity is not available. When Amazon EC2 interrupts a Spot instance, it provides a Spot instance interruption notice, which gives the instance a two-minute warning before Amazon EC2 interrupts it.
