What is Cloud ValetTM ?
Cloud ValetTM is a single-purpose SaaS tool within the PvDC Management Portal that is included for FREE to all PvDC customers and enables users to automatically schedule on/off times for their idle virtual servers. Reduce cloud computing costs by paying only for the resources you’re actually using. Cloud ValetTM also includes the ability to “Stall” or temporarily suspend the action of a parking schedule to keep a running instance running or a stopped instance stopped longer.
By proactively parking idle cloud services, Cloud ValetTM can verifiably slash your cloud computing costs by 20% or more. For example, an organization spends $5,000 by running their data 730 hours/month. Let’s assume 192 hours of the month (which is about 26%) are dedicated to “weekend” time where resources are not used (Saturday and Sunday). If a schedule was created to “power off” for the weekends, this would save 26%, or $1,315/month. This equates to $15,700/year in savings just by turning off on the weekends.
Stop Paying for Idle Cloud Services
With just a few clicks, customers can unlock savings by optimizing the use of resources in the cloud.
Key features include the ability to:
• Schedule groups of virtual servers – link back to virtual servers to turn On/Off
•Temporarily suspend the action of a parking schedule and set resume dates/times
•Schedule virtual servers on a common schedule – even across data centers
•Set delay – For example: allowing plenty of time to come online before other servers
