Managing Clusters
Also available as:

Stop a cluster

Cloudbreak supports stopping and restarting clusters. Once a cluster is in the ""Running" state, it can be stopped.


  1. Browse to the cluster details.
  2. Click Stop to stop a currently running cluster.
  3. Click Yes to confirm.
  4. Your cluster status changes to “Stopping in progress” and then to “Stopped”. Once stopping the infrastructure has completed, you will see a Start option to restart your cluster.

When a cluster is in the “stopped” state, cluster VMs are given back to the cloud provider; Once the cluster is restarted, new VMs are provisioned. Therefore when a cluster is in the “stopped” state, you are no longer charged for VMs, but you are charged for external storage.
