Stopped Ec2 instance not removed

Description

AWS EC2 instance is a virtual server, that provides secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It was found that your EC2 instance {AwsEc2Instance} is in 'stopped' state and has not run for over 30 days. Stopped EC2 instance is not actively maintained, which may cause unanticipated issues in your environment in case it will be relaunched. To securely reactivate a stopped EC2 instance after a while, it must be started periodically for maintenance, and can be stopped again after the process is done. This can be done automatically.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    It is recommended to terminate the stopped EC2 instance. Make sure to copy any relevant data from your EC2 instance store volumes to Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) or Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).
