Notice: EC2 Scheduler has been superseded by AWS Instance Scheduler.

In 2016, the EC2 Scheduler was launched to help AWS customers easily configure custom start and stop schedules for their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. In 2018, AWS launched the AWS Instance Scheduler, a new and improved scheduling solution that enables customers to schedule Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) instances, and more. We encourage customers to migrate to AWS Instance Scheduler for future updates and new features.

Legacy templates, scripts, and documentation for EC2 Scheduler are available in our GitHub repository.
