Terminated instances remain visible after termination (for approximately one hour).
By default, Amazon EC2 deletes all EBS volumes that were attached when the instance launched. Volumes attached after instance launch continue running.
You can stop, start, and terminate EBS-backed instances. You can only terminate instance
store-backed instances. What happens to an instance differs if you stop it or terminate
it. For example, when you stop an instance, the root device and any other devices
attached to the instance persist. When you terminate an instance, any attached EBS
volumes with the
DeleteOnTermination block device mapping parameter set
true are automatically deleted. For more information about the differences
between stopping and terminating instances, see Instance
Lifecycle in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
