You can release idle pay-as-you-go instances at any time.


The billing method of the instances that you want to release must be pay-as-you-go.


You cannot restore a released instance. You must be cautious when you release the instance. We recommend that you create a backup and download a backup set before you release the instance. For more information, see manually back up and download backup sets.
