We’re happy to share that you can now park AWS RDS instances with ParkMyCloud! AWS just recently released the ability to start and stop RDS instances. Now, with ParkMyCloud, you can automate RDS start/stop on a schedule, so your databases used for development, testing, and other important resources can be ‘parked’.
Amazon Web Services customers can now schedule Stop/Start for AWS RDS Instances with ParkMyCloud’s Automated Cost Savings Platform. With this tool, businesses can now save more money while using RDS. This is the first parking feature on the market that’s fully integrated with AWS’s recently launched RDS start/stop capability.

Cloud access control policy can be a tricky balance. On the one hand, cloud security is a top concern among many cloud users we talk to. On the other, the ease, flexibility, and speed of the cloud can be sacrificed when users aren’t given the access they need to the resources they use. ParkMyCloud solves this problem.
When you spin up a compute 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.
