ParkMyCloud Release: 70x Faster, Sequenced Start/Stop

ParkMyCloud Release: 70x Faster, Sequenced Start/Stop, & More!

We just released a new version of ParkMyCloud that’s jam-packed with new capabilities and features! Here’s what’s new.

More than 70x Faster

Previously, ParkMyCloud ingested instances from AWS every 6 hours – which suited most purposes, but meant there was a lag in displaying new instances. Now, ParkMyCloud will auto-ingest from AWS every 5 minutes. This has a few benefits: parking is now more tightly enforced, instance state changes made outside of ParkMyCloud (e.g. directly changed in the AWS console) will be detected within 1 minute, and the entire orchestration engine is more stable and reliable.

Resource Groups for Sequenced Start/Stop

logicalgroup1You can now combine your instances in what we call “Logical Groups” for ease of management. You can park a group as if it were a single instance.

Additionally, you can sequence the order in which you want instances in a group to start and stop, providing configurable delays.

This feature grew directly from user feedback, because of the challenges they have with some database and other legacy applications.  We’re happy to deliver!

Fresh, Compact Dashboard

The dashboard has been redesigned, with new capabilities, including vastly improved search filtering (can now filter by schedules and schedule status, auto scaling groups, logical groups, and more).logicalgroup2

You can also now extend a parking calendar “snooze”. Read more about how our customers take advantage of the snooze feature, and more!
