    Hello BM.

    Thanks for the reply. I will try my best to answer your question.

    You can still stop an instance if you are using Amazon EBS as root volume because EBS volumes are persistent block storage. You just can’t stop an instance store volume using AWS CLI because it is not a persistent storage. Because if you’ve accidentally stopped it using an AWS CLI, all of your data will be gone. An instance store volume only provides temporary block-level storage for your instance. If you really need to stop an instance store volume, you can use the AWS Management Console.

    I hope this helps.
