Hi @pditommaso I've got a question about nextflow cloud and its support for spot pricing when auto scaling. Do I need to add retry handling to my nextflow pipeline to handle the case where a spot instance is shutdown prematurely? I'm kind of assuming yes, but perhaps there's some built in support for handling this automatically?

Nope, spot instances retired are managed transparently, that will not raise an process error
Said that in a cloud environment I would use a retry strategy in any case
