Stop and start Cloud Resources

What is it?

CloudTime monitors your cloud, stopping then restarting resources to your schedule with no data loss. Doing so for a just few resources can save thousands of dollars a month on your Azure and AWS bills. CloudTime's graphical user interface is easy to use requiring no technical scripting or code. Its Software as a Service (SaaS) so there is nothing to install. With CloudTime you can:

  • Explore and find expensive AWS and Azure resources
  • Schedule resources to be automatically stopped, started or deleted when not needed
  • Execute your schedules at specific times or when utilization falls below your thresholds
  • Stop/start resources depending on their tags, including resources created in the future

Catch new resources

Schedules can automatically apply to newly created resources that match specific tag criteria: as your workforce creates new resources, the same schedules are applied automatically

EC2, RDS, Azure VMs... and more

CloudTime's access to your cloud resources is managed through AWS and Azure Identity and Access Management, allowing you to control which cloud resources CloudTime can access.

Powerful Performance
