25 Comments on “Can I move a Reserved Instance from one Region to another?

    1. says:

      Wrong, as there is nothing about “move outside a region but between all AZ”…

      Convertible Reserved Instances -Convertible RIs give you even more flexibility and offer a significant discount (typically 45% compared to On-Demand). They allow you to change the instance family and other parameters associated with a Reserved Instance at any time. For example, you can convert C3 RIs to C4 RIs to take advantage of a newer instance type, or convert C4 RIs to M4 RIs if your application turns out to need more memory. You can also use Convertible RIs to take advantage of EC2 price reductions over time.

      Answer A ist right.


  1. Simon Liang says:


    Q: Can I move a Reserved Instance from one Region or Availability Zone to another?

    Each Reserved Instance is associated with a specific Region, which is fixed for the lifetime of the reservation and cannot be changed. Each reservation can, however, be used in any of the available AZs within the associated Region.


  2. Duck bro says:

    Q: Can I transfer a Convertible or Standard Reserved Instance from one region to another?
    No, a Reserved Instance is associated with a specific region, which is fixed for the duration of the reservation’s term.


  3. UKT says:

    When you exchange one Convertible Reserved Instance for another, EC2 ensures that the total value of the Convertible Reserved Instances is maintained through a conversion. So, if you are converting your Reserved Instance with a total value of $1000 for another Reserved Instance, you will receive a quantity of Convertible Reserved Instances with a value that’s equal to or greater than $1000. You cannot convert your Convertible Reserved Instance for Convertible Reserved Instance(s) of a lesser total value.
