We’re announcing a new, free tier of ParkMyCloud! That’s right – you now have the option for free cloud optimization using ParkMyCloud – forever.
Why Script When ParkMyCloud is free?
We’ve created the free tier option to support our developer friends who, to save money on non-production resources that are not being used nights and weekends, are currently using the best option available: home grown scheduling scripts. Friends: we want to save you the trouble of scripting (it’s not the answer!) Now you can use ParkMyCloud to apply on/off schedules to your instances — for free, which means no approvals required. Plus with ParkMyCloud’s policy engine, you can have instances automatically set on schedules and assigned to teams. The full automation means no work for you to keep your instances’ up/down time optimized.
Of course, more advanced features, such as SSO, multi-cloud, API, audit logs, and reporting do require subscription to a paid tier. Many of our customers start with small public cloud environments and grow from there. The premium features have been added to support companies who are scaling in the public cloud or who need higher levels of governance or security. We aim to make these as cost-effective for users as possible – customers usually recoup their yearly fee in 6 weeks or less.
14-Day Trial of All Features
The new model gives all new users access to a free 14-trial where they can experience all of the premium features. At the end of those 14 days, you can choose to subscribe to the plan that meets your needs. If you decide you don’t need the premium features, or you want to spend longer testing the tool, you have the option to move to the free tier. Just remember that if you do move to free you will lose those premium features.
