While Pay-As-You-Go clusters cannot expire, Subscription clusters can.

If an ECS instance in a cluster expires, you are notified of its expiration. Expired ECS instances run for another 15 days. After this point, if your subscription is not renewed, the expired ECS instances stop, but data is retained for an additional 15 days. If after 30 days your subscription is not renewed, the instances are released and the data permanently deleted.

When E-MapReduce services expire, you can no longer perform operations on the cluster from the console or call APIs. Automatic O&M (including monitoring and alarms) is also stopped.

If you want to continue using E-MapReduce and ECS instances, you must renew your subscription. E-MapReduce and ECS instances can be renewed at the same time on the E-MapReduce product console. After renewal, data and services are both automatically restored.

If you want to release a cluster, wait for it to stop. ECS instances are released automatically, without the need for renewal.

Overdue payments

Notice The system may send you notifications that you have overdue payments. When this occurs, please clear all overdue payments to avoid instances being released. Please note that your instances may be released at a system-selected time after the payment due date.

A payment is overdue when your balance is insufficient and you cannot pay for the expenses incurred in the last hour. It is not possible for a Subscription cluster to be overdue in its payment.

If one of your Pay-As-You-Go clusters has a payment overdue, E-MapReduce stops.

ECS instances in a cluster that has an overdue payment continue to run for 15 days, after which they stop. Data is retained for an additional 15 days. After this, if you do not make a payment, the instances are released and the data permanently deleted. E-MapReduce stops until the cluster is restored or released.


Different clusters do not affect one another. For example, if you have a Subscription cluster and a Pay-As-You-Go cluster, the former is not impacted if the latter has a payment overdue.
