We realized that in our non-production environments, ParkMyCloud could provide us with even better savings, with more flexibility than Reserved Instances.
Manage multiple public cloud accounts while maintaining governance using team and role structures.
Automate scheduled on/off times for your public cloud resources to save time and development resources
Gain a single view of all your resources from multiple AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform accounts, across all regions, instance/VM types, and pricing options.
Think of ParkMyCloud as a programmable on/off switch for your AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform instances – it simply turns them off when you do not need them.
Create a ParkMyCloud account – no credit card required – and connect to your cloud provider.
Discover and manage all your resources on a single page, across cloud providers.
Just click the schedule to automatically “Park” (stop) and start resources based on your working hours.
When you spin up a cloud resource in a public cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP) it is always running unless you specifically turn it off. Many non-production resources - such as development, testing, and staging - are only needed during a forty-to-sixty-hour work week. This means that if these resources are left running 24x7, up to 75% of spend on them is wasted.
With ParkMyCloud, it is simple to reduce cloud costs. With ParkMyCloud’s powerful yet easy-to-use scheduling tool and policy engine, you can automatically schedule these servers to turn off when they are not needed, such as on nights and weekends. Use one of our pre-created schedules, or create your own.
In addition to automated scheduling to reduce cloud costs, ParkMyCloud helps with organization and governance. When you connect your AWS, Azure, or GCP account to ParkMyCloud, you will see all resources in a single-view dashboard. Create users in ParkMyCloud, or authenticate users via federated single sign-on (SSO). Organize your users with teams and role structures. You can even add users outside of the cloud end-user group - such as Finance - to provide access to ParkMyCloud’s spending and savings reporting.
ParkMyCloud is easy to set up, requiring just 10 minutes to set up an account - with no integrations or installations. Try it now with a 14-day free trial.
