Traditional virtual machines are long-running servers with standard operating systems that are only shut down when you say they can be shut down. On the other hand, preemptible VMs last no longer than 24 hours and can be stopped on a moment’s notice (and may not be available at all). So why use them? Google Cloud Preemptible VM Overview.
