  1. The cost of using spot instances with different bid prices and failure time points given for Case 1 where all spot instanced get terminated for the Exome and the Whole Genome datasets. GCE cluster setup time is nearly 7 min. For every bid we provided the average lifetime of cluster in brackets. Costs in bold are the most likely ones with the respective bid price and its most likely time of failure. The best expected costs for a given experiment are underlined. The best expected cost for exome is 3.334 using bid of 0.4 (underlined) and for whole genomes comes is 149.39 (underlined) with 32 nodes and bid price of 0.6
