Transparently replace expensive On-Demand servers with
cost effective Spot instances and power down idle resources.
Spot market servers are up to 80% cheaper than regular On-Demand servers but they require special treatment. PowerDown manages Spot instances for you so that you can use them transparently in your production Auto Scale groups without compromising availability.
Automatic Spot Management
- Transparently deploy Spot instances for production Auto Scale groups without compromising availability and cut compute costs by up to 80%.
- Run both Spot and On-Demand instances in a single Auto Scale group.
- Set desired number or percentage of Spot or On-Demand instances.
- Dynamically scale Spot and On-Demand instances.
- If Spot instances are reclaimed, PowerDown proactively launches On-Demand instances before the Spot instances are terminated — protecting availability and capacity.
One Click Setup
- Easy one click connect to your cloud account.
- Automatically discovers all your cloud resources in all regions.
- Connect multiple cloud accounts.
- Filter to select and exclude resources by tags.
- AWS today, Azure and GCP tomorrow.
- During a normal work week, development, test and staging servers are typically required only during work hours — about 40 hours out of a total of 168 hours. Power down those resources after-hours, and you can realize savings of up to 70% from your DevOps cloud spend.
- Automatically power down idle servers, databases and containers with smart dynamic schedules.
- Each team member describes their personal schedule for when they need resources and PowerDown combines them all to create a unified dynamic schedule that adapts in real-time to changing user requirements.
- Users can update or override schedules at any time, anywhere in the world.
- No more manually calculating the combined schedules for your team or worrying about timezones.
