Enable Flexibility & Scalability with ParkMyCloud 2.0

ParkMyCloud 2.0 is here! 

This major update, requested by many of our customers, allows you to add multiple users and manage multiple AWS accounts in your ParkMyCloud account. The addition of these frequently-requested features will allow you to utilize ParkMyCloud across users and teams in your organization and continue to reap huge savings (like this company, which is saving $55k/year on their AWS spend).

Let’s take a look at what’s new.

Top View: Your Organization

ParkMyCloud Dashboard - now with multiuser and multi credentialEvery ParkMyCloud user account now rolls up to an organization your company. Within your organization, you can have multiple teams and users. Those teams can have one or more AWS accounts associated with them all allowing you to collaborate internally and enable flexibility and scalability.

If you are the Super Admin of your account (more on roles below), you will be able to see instances from all AWS accounts, across all AWS regions and all teams. The information available includes instance name, instance ID, instance purchasing option (On-Demand, Spot, Auto Scaling, etc.), instance type (such as m3.medium), and the price per hour for that instance, as well as tags.

Teams, Users, and Roles

You can organize your ParkMyCloud users in teams, to reflect your internal structure and governance. AWS instances belong to just one team, which means you can restrict instances and parking access from groups of users, for example, so that your development team can not park staging instances.

There are four roles that you can assign to users:

  • Super Admin – has access to everything in the system, including access to create and manage teams. An organization may have multiple Super Admins.
  • Team Lead – Team Leads can add and manage users on their team, as well as AWS accounts and instances associated with their teams.
  • Team Member – Team Members can manage parking schedules and other dashboard items for the AWS instances associated with their teams.
  • Purchaser – if purchases in your company must be actioned by a purchasing department, you can create a user with the Purchaser role. Purchasers can subscribe an organization to ParkMyCloud and add/update billing information.

Perhaps most importantly, all roles (besides purchaser) have the ability to apply, remove, and snooze parking schedules.

More detail on user permissions is provided in the chart below:
