Delete Detached EBS Volumes

Delete EBS volumes that have been detached for a specific time period

  • Identify which detached EBS volumes to delete

    Create a rule that targets specific accounts and regions within which you want to identify suitable EBS volume candidates for deletion to free up more space and optimise your cloud bill.

  • Create a schedule

    Determine how long an EBS volume needs to be detached before taking a delete action on it. This allows you to comply with any governance or retention policies that apply to the business or industry that your infrastructure is operating for.

  • Let the magic happen

    You can let the rule run on its own or when a volume is ready to be deleted you can choose to be notified by Slack, HipChat or e-mail – allowing you or any member of your team with appropriate permissions to intervene.
