ParkMyCloud Launches Features to Support Multiple Users Across Multiple AWS Accounts

AWS customers of all sizes can now manage up to tens of thousands of instances across hundreds of users and AWS Accounts

Dulles, VA , March 15th, 2016 – Responding to significant demand from Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers, ParkMyCloud, the first programmable on/off switch for idle AWS instances, today announced that its accounts now support multiple users and multiple AWS accounts.

Enterprises including Sage, Neustar, Avid, Wolters Kluwer, Findly and ZestFinance use ParkMyCloud to significantly reduce their AWS EC2 spending by automatically turning off non-production instances when they are not needed – such as 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. or on weekends.

With the new multi-user, multi-account features, customers can set up ParkMyCloud to mirror their internal structures and processes by:

  • Creating teams, and adding Team Leads and Team Members to their accounts.
  • Adding multiple AWS accounts to a single ParkMyCloud account.
  • Constraining users in one team from seeing another team’s AWS instances.
  • Seeing a single view of all of an organization’s teams and linked AWS accounts.

“IT operations and infrastructure organizations of any size and configuration can now use ParkMyCloud to ‘park’ all of their idle AWS instances,” said ParkMyCloud Chief Technology Officer, Dale Wickizer, “making it even easier to reduce AWS spending.”

“What attracted me to ParkMyCloud was the simplicity of the solution they provide,” said John Neale, Senior Software Engineer at 4Impact. “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.”
