You can now use nOps Scheduler to hibernate EC2 instances and then bring them back to life when you need them. The hibernation process stores the in-memory state of the instance, along with its private and elastic IP addresses, allowing it to pick up exactly where it left off. While creating a schedule, simply toggle the Hibernate option and nOps Scheduler will hibernate the scheduled resources instead of stopping them.



Each Auto Scaling Group recommendation offers two types of scheduling configurations: One Time Configuration and Dynamic Configuration. One Time Configurations are standard, once you configure a one-time schedule with a specific number of desired nodes it will remain the same until you change it. Dynamic Configurations on the other hand reduce the allocated resources on a daily basis according to the number of active resources each day. Click on any Auto Scaling Group recommendation to see the details of how each configuration will impact the resources(nodes) in the Auto Scaling Group.



Dynamic Configurations allow you to save substantially more —compared to One Time Configurations— by adjusting the allocated resources to exactly match the active resources each day. The decision to use One Time Configuration or Dynamic Configuration is up to you, according to your use case. To implement the scheduling recommendation for an Auto Scaling Group, click on the “Schedule” button and simply select the configuration type.
