Cloud Computing Green Initiatives on the Rise

Over the past couple of months, we have seen a lot of articles about the Big Three cloud providers and their efforts to be environmentally friendly and make cloud computing green. What are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) doing to make their IaaS services as green as possible?

AWS Secrets Manager Makes Security Simpler

A few weeks ago, Amazon released their AWS Secrets Manager for public use. This is a very welcome announcement.

How Upgrade Cycles Impact the Cost per Instance in Cloud Computing

I have recently spent an increasing amount of time discussing (arguing) about whether the cost per instance in cloud computing is going up or down. The reason for this is that while objective analysis by reputable third parties shows that computing costs are reducing, what we observe from our own standpoint is that the average…

How We Reduce Cloud Costs

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.
