I have an Amazon EC2 Reserved Instance that will expire soon, and I want to purchase a new Reserved Instance to replace it. Can I schedule my Reserved Instance to auto-renew, or can I purchase a new Reserved Instance in advance?

It’s not currently possible to schedule an EC2 Reserved Instance to auto-renew, or to purchase Reserved Instances in advance. Reserved Instances are active as soon as they’re successfully purchased.

To view your active Reserved Instances and see when they expire, check the Amazon EC2 console.

Note: Reserved Instances apply to a specific region, so make sure to check all regions where you have created Reserved Instances.

Reserved Instance, EC2, expire, renew, auto-renew, advance
