Instances in "Shelved_Offloaded" state

In order to free up some capacity for new instances, we are currently “shelving” instances that haven’t been started since we shut them down in December.

Shelving allows us to reclaim the computing resource that is still taken up by instances that are in a Shut Down state.

We are currently working on adding a new feature to that will allow users to unshelve their own instances, but until this is implemented, please send me a PM and I can unshelve your instance for you.
