Spinning up EC2 workers for a build


With Jenkins we can spin up a large (32 core) EC2 instance for a build, and then power it off after the build is finished. This is fairly cost effective as the duty cycle is typically low, and AWS only charges for when a EC2 instance is actually running. Is there any way to do something like this in Concourse?


Hello, again, Pipeline for Yocto/Bitbake builds? gives an hint also on the spin on/off.
