ParkMyCloud is a cost-effective, lightweight app that allows AWS users to pay only for the computing resources they’re actually using by scheduling on/off times (“parking”) for their idle cloud computing services. As a result, customers can reduce cloud computing costs by 20% or more, in just 15 minutes. ParkMyCloud is SaaS-based, so there’s nothing to download and no installation required.
For example, an organization spending $5,000 a month on their AWS infrastructure can easily save 21% a month using ParkMyCloud’s parking calendars. That’s $12,731 a year in hard savings with a payback of just 6 weeks.
Inspired by the success of “consumerized” business tools such as Box and Zendesk, ParkMyCloud is part of a fast-growing breed of simplified, purpose-built SaaS applications designed to solve one problem (cloud cost reduction) in a simple, inexpensive manner.
