Use a spot instance.
A spot instance is a virtual machine that is available at a discounted price. Spot instances are ideal for prototyping workloads, as they are less expensive than regular virtual machines.
Spot instances are available at a discounted price because they are surplus capacity. This means that spot instances may be unavailable at times. However, spot instances are a good option for prototyping workloads, as you can simply stop the spot instance when you are not using it.
