Hi Benjamin, thanks for writing a review! We appreciate your business & ongoing feedback you provide as a customer.

I do want to comment on a few things you mentioned. We will be adding support for Google Compute (and Microsoft Azure) in the near future - first half of 2017. Also, time to monitor should be reduced once we have external notifications (email, etc.) in place. Regarding the security policy which we've discussed offline, we're in communication with AWS on ways to make this simpler to manage.

Again, thanks so much for taking the time to review, and as always, please reach out with any questions or feedback!

Excellent Experience: Easy to Use, Powerful, Money-Saving

2017-10-17

Cost savings, ability to schedule environments, easy UI to be able to restart instances outside of the AWS console (so we can control who needs/gets access to the AWS console directly).

Pros

In the future, we will also leverage it to be able to control when a DR site comes online.

Instant ROI, it's a no brainer

2020-11-11

Pros

We struggled for a long time with providing users in the organization with easy to use interface to control resources on AWS, and when ParkMyCloud came it enabled us to easily allow a lot of less technical people to control resources we wanted to allocate to them and save a lot of money and work

Cons

The UI looks a bit out-dated (but the overall user experience is still great)

Overall, this product is great at what it does and it saved us from having to code the process.

2017-10-17

Saved thousands per month on a fairly small number of EC2 instances that were costly running 24/7.

Pros

We can have vendors control instance status without intervention. - Quick response on turning on/off an instance and maintaining that state if the change was done within AWS console itself. - Nice inventory/details of each instance such as IPs, instance type, instance ID, block devices, etc...

Cons

May have to craft special IAM permissions to limit the instances it bills on

Cost optimization simplified

2017-02-01

when we were first introduced to Park my cloud, I have really appreciated the ease of setup based on Tags and the interface was very innovative and lucid to understand. the real time UI of showing up the actual savings are true reflection of the amount you are saving , which is quite appreciable as calculation based on manual is quite cumbersome as it involves many loose ends. the variety of schedules are really a quite relief as we an schedule it as per our convenience.

Simple service makes scheduling instances easy

2017-01-17

The interface is rather simple and straightforward, so it's easy to jump right in and start scheduling your instances.

Pros

It is priced low enough that it is a no-brainer if you have a few instances that are only required at a certain time.

Cons

So far I have a feature request to be able to scale down auto scaling groups to a specific number instead of 0, for times when I know traffic will be low.

A Necessity for SaaS Companies

2019-11-28

ParkMyCloud has been critical in helping us monitor our spend and increase efficiency within our dev team.

Pros

I LOVE the savings that we have been getting from ParkMyCloud. Previously we were not managing our cloud spend very well and since implementing this software we have saved almost 10x what we are paying for it.

Cons

If we could have figured out the real benefit sooner than we would have saved more money faster.

Give it a try, you have nothing to loose and much to gain

2020-10-21

Fabulous, has saved my company $$$$ I was looking at cost savings due to the scale up of out environment to account for the users working from home and with that incurred extra cost so looked as mitigating this as much as possible.

Pros

Easy to use with excellent filtering options so you only have to pay for the resources its managing which was a must for us, provides extremely useful scaling options quickly that would otherwise take time to calculate.

Cons

Was a little tricky to setup but its a one time job.

WMC & ParkMyCloud

2020-10-22

Great to use - new capabilities being released. Highly recommend.

Pros

ParkMyCloud allows you to automatically stop and start your cloud instances, making significant savings. For example, if test instances can be closed down overnight and at weekends, thats a considerable saving of something like 60% of the normal cost.

Cons

No real issues that we came across.
