Spot0 support in AWS spot block duration

Many customers are not using Spots because their workloads aren't built to support unexpected interruptions. Spot blocks provide up to 6 hours of uptime. It will allow our customers to run short stateful workloads, such as Jenkins tasks, automated tests, map-reduce, batch, ML training, Video transcoding, etc - on spots. For example, A customer is transcoding hundreds of videos every day, and the process takes hours with standard instances. He wants to accelerate the process, and his options are: Allocate larger instances > will increase the OPEX Develop support in Spots > this could be tricky and increase the R&D cost A possible solution with Spot0: Combine duration-defined spots with On-demand fallback to offer greater stability for short workloads that cannot tolerate interruptions.
