Pay only for what you use. There is no minimum fee. Skeddly's pricing model is very similar to that of Amazon Web Services.

Free Tier

Anyone can get started for free. All Skeddly customers receive the following each calendar month:

  • 31 "Start Instance" action executions for t1.micro instances
  • 5 "Create EBS Snapshot" action executions

That's enough to start and stop an EC2 micro instance every day, and to take a snapshot each week for a month.


Prices are per action execution unless otherwise indicated.
