Aws EC2 Hibernate option

What is the use of hibernate option in EC2 console.

How much we can save cost between stopping server and hibernating server

Hi Saran,
Hibernation saves the contents from the instance memory (RAM) to your root volume and persist the instance’s root volume and data volumes.
When you start the instance,
The Amazon EBS root volume is restored to its previous state
The RAM contents are reloaded and processes that were previously running on the instance are resumed.
The Previously attached volumes (data) are restored.

While the instance is in hibernation, you pay only for the EBS storage and any Elastic IP addresses attached to the instance.
