What's the difference between "Pause" and "Stop"?

    When you "Pause" a CQ cloud, Amazon doesn't charge anymore for CPU cycles (EC2) but still charges for storage (EBS) that remains allocated. You can start again a CQ cloud previously paused, and it will reattach the EBS to new EC2 instances.


    When you "Stop" a CQ cloud, no more resources (EC2, EBS) are allocated, but Amazon still charges for the backups saved on S3. You can restore a CQ cloud previously stopped from the online backups retained.
