Release a Server Load Balancer instance

Last Updated: Nov 27, 2017

When you no longer need Server Load Balancer, delete the corresponding instance to avoid additional charges. Deleting the Server Load Balancer instance does not delete or affect backend ECS instances.

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


  1. Log on to the ECS console.

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

  3. Select the target instance and click More > Release.

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

    If you select Timed Release, select the time to release the instance.

  5. Click Next and click Confirm to finish.
