Pausing a Cluster in AWS

Minimum Required Role: Operator (also provided by Configurator, Cluster Administrator, Limited Cluster Administrator , and Full Administrator)

If all data for a cluster is stored on EBS volumes, you can pause the cluster and stop your AWS EC2 instances during periods when the cluster will not be used. The cluster will not be available while paused and can’t be used to ingest or process data, but you won't be billed by Amazon for the stopped EC2 instances. Provisioned EBS storage volumes will continue to accrue charges.
