How to Turn AWS Utilization Data
into Automated Action



RDS and EC2 Start and Stop Scheduling

Non-production cloud resources, such as those needed for development, testing, staging, and QA, are typically only needed during the workday. The other 65% of the week, they sit idle – even though you’re paying every second they’re running. ParkMyCloud’s “SmartParking” RDS and EC2 Start and Stop Scheduler uses resource utilization history to automatically recommend on/off schedules for your resources to reduce AWS costs. Or schedule AWS instances based onyour unique needs & automatically assign them to resources based on names, tags, or teams.




40% of cloud instances are oversized – that is, they’re provisioned at a larger capacity than actually needed. That means you’re paying for capacity you’re rarely, or never, using. Just by reducing an instance by one size, you can reduce the cost by 50%. Downsizing two sizes saves 75%. ParkMyCloud’s “SmartSizing” uses resource utilization history to automatically recommend resources that are regularly underutilized and can therefore be resized to reduce AWS spend.
