I am curious if one of the existing cloud platform/PaaS providers allow transferring ownership of running instances between accounts. One use case would be a service provider who is running an instance on behalf of a client could transfer the instance to the client's own account once the client wants to take over the management themselves.

I dont think currently any provider provide this functionality where instance can be directly transfer to another account but in AWS you can not actually transfer the instance of ownership but easily can migrate instance to another account by creating AMI.

Please see more details
