Release a Server Load Balancer instance

Last Updated: Jul 24, 2017

When you do not need the Server Load Balancer service anymore, delete the corresponding instance to avoid additional charges. The backend ECS will not be deleted or affected when deleting the Server Load Balancer instance.

Note: After the Server Load Balancer instance is released, the backend ECS instances are still running. If you want to release the ECS instances, refer to Release an instance.


  1. Log on to the ECS console.

  2. On the Instance Management page, select the region where the instance is located.

  3. Select the target instance and click Release Settings.

  4. In the Release Settings dialog, select Release Now or Timed Release.

    If you choose Timed Release, select the time when the instance is released.

  5. Click Next Step and click Confirm to finish.
