Automated AWS cost optimization tool looks to keep momentum going on heels of enterprise customer wins
Dulles, VA, April 11th, 2016 – ParkMyCloud, a SaaS tool that helps Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers optimize Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) compute resources to maximize the return on their AWS investment, announced today that the company is sponsoring the AWS Chicago Summit on April 18-19, 2016, at the McCormick Place, Lakeside Center in Chicago, IL. Look for ParkMyCloud in booth #330.
Following a number of significant enterprise customer wins, including Sage, Neustar, Avid, Wolters Kluwer, Findly and ZestFinance, ParkMyCloud Co-Founders Jay Chapel (CEO) and Dale Wickizer (CTO) are excited to speak with AWS customers at the event.
“AWS re:Invent 2015 gave ParkMyCloud a huge burst of momentum right out of the gate,” said Chapel. “We not only gained great market traction, we also got tremendous validation and feedback on our initial product – which we’ve already enhanced based on additional customer insights.”
Avid, a global audio and video technology company, is using ParkMyCloud to reduce its annual AWS spending by $55,000, according to Satnam Bains, Avid’s Global Director of Infrastructure Services. “Once our teams understand the AWS charging model of compute by the hour, they recognize the need to park instances and engage,” said Bains. “Costs are attached to every hour. Then, the metaphorical penny drops.”
