ParkMyCloud is an enterprise SaaS app that customers can set up in under 10 minutes to automatically schedule start/stop times for their public cloud computing servers—thereby reducing wasted spending on idle, non-production servers. (We call this “parking.”) We’ve helped customers such as McDonald's, Capital One, Sage Software, Neustar, Avid, Wolters Kluwer and Tristar Medical Group dramatically cut their cloud bills by up to 60%, delivering millions of dollars in savings.

HOW WE REDUCE CLOUD COSTS
When you spin up a compute resource in a public cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, 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 or Azure 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 30-day free trial.
