When I reboot an EC2 instance, do I get the initial image again, or is the state of the hard disk before the reboot kept?

And what happens with billing, does the hour start again, or do I continue with the fraction of the hour I was in when I rebooted?

It is just like rebooting your PC. 

  • The connected hard disk is not affected but the temporary RAM data is erased and your saved data is available just like your PC.
  • Rebooting your instances do not have any effect on your billing.
  • Only the time your instances are running is taken into account, and it is stopped as soon as you stop or terminate your instance.
