How to save money with EC2 Scheduling for AWS

Are you having problems running your EC2 instances at certain times of the day when they are not required? Well, there is no need to worry about it anymore. We have the perfect solution for you and your business.

Our EC2 scheduler for Amazon Web Services (AWS) helps save on unnecessary costs that are incurred due to idle instances. Our software has been designed to allow users to schedule turning on/off instances at daily, weekly or monthly intervals based on your requirements. This enables users to run instances during business hours only on your non-production environments. By using our EC2 scheduling software we can help you automate instances regularly, quickly and easily.

So how does it work?

In most cases, many organizations will be running their AWS instances 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. With CloudRanger, you can reduce your costs significantly by scheduling your non-production EC2 resources to shutdown by server or by tag when they are not required. Here are some examples of where we can help save you money.

  • Start and Shutdown EC2 instances to run only during business hours
  • Stop all non-production EC2 instances at evenings and weekends
  • Only pay for the resources you use, eliminate high cloud usage
  • Improve efficiency by streamlining and automating repetitive operations

CloudRanger makes it possible to save up to 63% on your non-production environment costs, based on existing customer feedback with our EC2 scheduling tool.

The alternatives?

Most industry experts recommend that users should schedule on and off times for EC2 instances, the problem is AWS don’t really help customers do this without a scripting solution. CloudRanger will help you automate your AWS EC2 instances. We do all of this without scripting for around $0.08 cents per task, with prices starting from $99 per month.

But don’t just take our word for it….

We are delighted with the CloudRanger product as it has helped us save money on our overall AWS cloud costs. We use CloudRanger predominantly for starting up our test servers on week-day mornings (Mon-Fri – 7am) and shutting them down in the evenings (Mon-Fri 7pm).
