Skeddly Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Skeddly's features:

Ken N.

Convenient, reliable, and very inexpensive

2018-07-09

Automated data backups and cost management Simplification of system operations Quick results, compared to doing it in-house

Pros

When scheduled tasks are run, notifications can be emailed on success or failure.

Cons

I haven't had any problems with Skeddly in my companies, but I can understand if other companies would prefer to keep these functions in-house. Skeddly is given a role in my AWS account which allows it to do its tasks, and this means that can get information about how my systems are organized. In addition, the log files that it preserves also reveal information about our configurations. It's obviously just a subset of what AWS already knows; but some companies could find it problematic.

Best AWS EC2 companion

2018-11-23

I was unsatisfied with AWS's automatic backup options for EC2 instances, which led me to search for a third party alternative.

Pros

I had a very specific goal in mind when signing up for Skeddly. The UI was so simple to follow, I had everything set up exactly the way I wanted within minutes.

Cons

The free trial offer is a bit confusing. If you add any service that is not included in the free tier, your free tier services will stop running until you pay.

Skeddly is simple, and fills a gap in AWS.

2017-07-20

Pros

- Ease of use. - Reliability. - I see SAML has been added which is cool  I was about to complain about that being missing. :)

Cons

If I want to see what jobs are costing more this month versus last month, I have to take the detailed itemised bills, and export / aggregate / manipulate the items manually.

Simplifies a Complicated Task

2017-06-16

This is a lifesaver and a must-have if you have critical data in the cloud.

Pros

Not only that, email notifications are available for successful and failed backups, giving me peace of mind.

Cons

It's kind of pain that everything is in Canadian dollar instead of USD, which is really only a minor annoyance.

Skeddly makes managing AWS better.

2018-06-08

Makes my life easier

Pros

Skeddly makes it easy for me to take snaps of all my important data and ship it to multiple regions.

Cons

Early on I made some poor choices in how I was tagging resources created by Skeddly and forgot several of my cleanup jobs were in test mode this lead to a few months of excessive charges for snapshot storage. A notification that a job was running, but in test mode for more than a week or something would be great.

Eric H.

One of two critical tools to our success in AWS.

2017-11-09

Easy automation of processes in Aws and even Aws GovCloud.

Pros

The pricing for the tool is reasonable and transaction based leaving the control of the budget in our hands which is so appreciated.

Cons

There is little to dislike; works well on mobile and feature requests are promptly handled.

This is a must have tool !

2019-01-29

We stop/start EC2 instances and plan backups and cleanup backups based on tags (images). This tool spares us money and time.

Pros

It's easy to use and configure all my shedules.

Cons

If you filter tasks on tags, you need to make you selection again after changing a task.

Easy to use. Stable. Good Features.

2020-04-30

Pros

Skeddly makes the management of repeated tasks in cloud services very easy to manage.

Cons

Moving Jobs or credentials to other projects easily would be a good feature to help separate out stacks of jobs.

Simple, reliable, reasonable cost

2019-02-13

Pros

I recommend Skeddly to others because unless you have a lot of time to burn scripting, testing and monitoring TO NOT use a service like this is not worth most IT professionals time . . . at least mine.

Cons

None to date however my use has been mainly to automate backups. In the works is using it to reduce costs during low usage hours with a RD server farm.

Great Software

2020-10-12

We use Skeddly in AWS for everything from snapshots, moving\copying snapshots between regions, creating AMIs, start\stop instances, and in our DR plan.

Pros

Skeddly is super easy to use, it's very intuitive; you can be up and running quickly and it just works.

Cons

Nothing to add here, we haven't come across any real detriments..

Dharam K.

Allows me to automate and manage my backup and DR plan for my organization at very low cost.

2017-12-30

I have an actual disaster recovery plan at a very low cost, hugely beneficial.

Pros

Because snapshots store data in different data centers, I now have a disaster recovery solution.

Cons

The interface could use some help, it is a LOT better than when I first started using it some years ago, but I still get confused.

David H.

Product meets and exceeds expectations

2017-10-24

Only reason I give it a 9 is because I rarely recommend products - this, however, is one I would definitely consider.

Pros

Based on positive and negative filters, I am assured that I can capture every snapshot that I need within an instance while knowing that if a failure were to occur, I would get immediate notification - and once the problem is resolved, Skeddly keeps on going.

So easy to use, even my clients can manage their cloud services.

2018-07-31

It allows my clients to manage their AWS infrastructure with less support from me.

Pros

So easy to define actions once you have linked it to your AWS account, and having multiple users for a Skeddly account is a great help too.

Cons

I would like to be able to one user identity which could access each of my client's Skeddly accounts, similar to the functionality in AWS which allows cross-account access.

Rely on this product across multiple accounts

2017-07-14

Pros

Ease of use for non-technical users. It can all be done with scripts outside of skedly but why pay developers for the simple stuff when you can use Skeddly

Cons

Would be nice to daisy chain actions together in order to allow more complicated / advanced workflows.

Definitely a "must" have tool if you need to manage AWS.

2018-03-22

Save a lot of money and time.

Pros

It's easy of use. You can manage a lot of AWS tasks without writing one line of code.

Cons

It would be good to be able to group tasks. For example backup tasks, scaling tasks etc. Now we have a log lost and solve this using a naming convention.

Skeddly does tasks that I dont want to think about

2018-07-06

Pros

It's simple interface and functionality help IT sleep at night, knowing Skeddly is always working for us.

Cons

One feature request is for Skeddly to look at our AMIs/Volumes/Snapshots, then to compare that to the AMIs running as EC2, and recommend deleting ones that are not used.
