Hi David,

The issue of having the 'stop' operation in Deltacloud terminate EC2 EBS backed instances
has been raised previously. It looks like you are already watching the related JIRA:, which is the right thing to do at this
Feel free to add to this JIRA if you have any more details you wish to include.
