Earlier this week we discussed ways to improve cloud automation through tagging. Today, I want to extend the conversation to look at how one ParkMyCloud user is applying tagging best practices to improve their cloud governance. The company we talked to — they’re in media, so let’s call them MediaCorp — has about 10,000 employees,…

Google Cloud Platform offers a range of machine types optimized to meet various needs. Machine types provide virtual hardware resources that vary by virtual CPU (vCPU), disk capability, and memory size, giving you a breadth of options. But with so much to choose from, finding the right Google Cloud machine type for your workload can…
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.
