Destroy a cluster.

destroy_cluster(name=None, ...)


This function destroys the cluster with the given name. Terminates all cluster nodes and running sessions but saves the cluster configuration and persists the associated S3 bucket and contents.

You can alternatively use delete_cluster(), which will additionally delete the S3 bucket and all its contents and remove the saved configuration.
