Dear Alibaba Cloud User,
In order to optimize and improve user experience, the stop and release rule for subscription ECS and RDS instances will be changed. Subscription ECS and RDS instances without auto-renewal service will be stopped immediately after expiration, and will be released 15 days later.
This change will be effective from 24:00 December 4th, 2017 (UTC+8:00). Subscription ECS and RDS instances with auto-renewal enabled will retain the current lifecycle and are not affected by this change.
Note that if you are not using auto-renew, you will receive several notification emails prior to your instance expiring, and can log on to alibabacloud.com to manually renew before the expiration time.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
The Alibaba Cloud Team
