ParkMyCloud for Cloud Cost Optimization
Automatically Identify & Eliminate Wasted Cloud Spend
The ParkMyCloud platform enables IT Ops, DevOps, and Infrastructure teams to easily manage, govern, and optimize their spend across multiple public clouds. ParkMyCloud’s platform makes it easy to automate cost savings by rightsizing resources and scheduling them to turn off when not being used. Optimize spend on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Alibaba Cloud and integrate with key operations functions including ChatOps, CI/CD, and SSO.

Turn Utilization Data into Automated Action
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” uses resource utilization history to automatically recommend on/off schedules for your resources to save money. Or create your own schedules & 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 for cost savings.
