Terminating an Instance

Once you have finished with your Atmosphere instance you will need to terminate this instance. If you are not done with the instance and will use it again in a short amount of time, you can stop or suspend that instance. For more on these options, see the Atmosphere manual.

Terminating an Instance


Once an instance is terminated, all data on that instance is unrecoverable. Ensure that any data you wish to save is transferred to a persistent location such as the CyVerse Data Store or an Atmosphere volume.

  1. If necessary, login to Atmosphere and locate the instance you are terminating in a given project.
  2. Click on the instance name to get to that instances page. You should see an "Actions" menu on the right-hand side of the page.
  3. Click Delete to terminate the instance; read the warning, and click 'YES, DELETE THIS INSTANCE' when you are ready to proceed - remember all data still on this instance will be lost.


This guide has taken you through the absolute basics needed to start using Atmosphere. There is a lot more to learn, and many more capabilities than described here. We encourage you to look through the full manual to learn more.
