What attracted me to ParkMyCloud was the simplicity of the solution they provide. We had been on the lookout for a product to manage our development servers for sometime and so, with the addition of the multi-user/multi-account features, ParkMyCloud gave us the ability to centrally govern our usage across all of our teams and AWS accounts, thus reducing our AWS EC2 spending and administration time.
Manage multiple public cloud accounts while maintaining governance using team and role structures.
Automate scheduled on/off times for your AWS EC2 and Azure resources to save time and development resources
Gain a single view of all your resources from multiple AWS and Azure accounts, across all regions, instance/VM types, and pricing options.
Think of ParkMyCloud as a programmable on/off switch for your AWS EC2 instances and Azure VMs – it simply turns them off when you do not need them.
Connect with Your Cloud Provider to Discover Your Compute Resources
Schedule On/Off Times for the Desired Resources
Reduce Your Cloud Costs by Up to 60%
When you spin up a compute resource in a public cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, 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 or Azure 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 30-day free trial.
