We are evaluating a TKLinux appliance on AWS on the Free Tier (12 month) and wanted to check that backups could be restored properly to a new instance (rather than risk corrupting the exisitng appliance we are currently running)

To do this we had to upgrade to the $10/month pay-per-use tariff (you can only have one instance on the free tier) and it looked as if we could upgrade/downgrade as required.

However, now that we have verified that we can restore successfully, it seems very unclear whether cancelling the pay-per-use plan will return us to the free tier for the remainder of the initia 12 month period, or if it will destroy the (free) micro-instance we still have running.

Does anyone have any advice or experience of having done this?

As long as you have destroyed your test server.

Sorry that's probably not the clear answer you were hoping for but I think it should work fine.
