Advice and answers from the CloudRanger Team

One of the other key functions that we offer, is to help with cost savings by switching off EC2 servers that are unused, particularly development servers. We have customers who have cut their EC2 costs dramatically because they are switching off servers that they aren’t using.

So development servers that typically might run 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. If you don’t need those, at the weekends and outside of these hours, what our customers do is add a tag to say it’s a development server and then have a policy that runs to switch those off outside of office hours. 

This is another area outside of backups that offers you some more key functionality, but it’s all included in the one package.
