  1. Dear Amazon EC2 Customer,
  3. We have important news about your account (AWS Account ID: ############). EC2 has detected degradation of the underlying hardware hosting your Amazon EC2 instance (instance-ID: i-d450b10d) in the us-west-2 region. Due to this degradation, your instance could already be unreachable. After 2016-09-08 05:00 UTC your instance, which has an EBS volume as the root device, will be stopped.
  5. You can see more information on your instances that are scheduled for retirement in the AWS Management Console (
  7. * How does this affect you?
  8. Your instance's root device is an EBS volume and the instance will be stopped after the specified retirement date. You can start it again at any time. Note that if you have EC2 instance store volumes attached to the instance, any data on these volumes will be lost when the instance is stopped or terminated as these volumes are physically attached to the host computer
  10. * What do you need to do?
  11. You may still be able to access the instance. We recommend that you replace the instance by creating an AMI of your instance and launch a new instance from the AMI. For more information please see Amazon Machine Images ( in the EC2 User Guide. In case of difficulties stopping your EBS-backed instance, please see the Instance FAQ (
  13. * Why retirement?
  14. AWS may schedule instances for retirement in cases where there is an unrecoverable issue with the underlying hardware. For more information about scheduled retirement events please see the EC2 user guide ( To avoid single points of failure within critical applications, please refer to our architecture center for more information on implementing fault-tolerant architectures:
