Reserved instances can be purchased and AWS will itself start applying the discounted hourly rates to your already running instances, without you having to configure or modify your already running instances.

You just have to make sure that:

  • Your reserved instances are in the same availability zones as your already running instances.
  • your reserved instances are of the same instance type as your already running instances.
