How to use Reserved Instances for Gamelift fleets


When reserved instances are purchased from EC2 > Reserved Instances, then I would guess that gamelift fleets can not use these instances? Is there a way to reserve instances to be used for gamelift fleets? My gamelift fleet has predictable usage and I would like to reserve instances for next 12 months and save costs.

You have a few options in Gamelift including Gamelift Spot which, if suitable for you, is likely to yield the best savings. Or Gamelift Anywhere allows you to use self-managed EC2 instances which you can cover with Reservations or Savings Plans. Savings Plans are definitely a better option than Reservations for compute resources - see for a discussion of trade-offs.
