Start and Stop Instances Automatically
Running EC2 instances 24-hours a day, 7 days a week is not always what you want. Many times, you simply want to have your instances running part of a day.
With Skeddly, you can schedule your instances to start and stop when you want them to. Run your instances during business hours only. Start extra instances during peak periods. Stop development and staging instances at the end of the day.
Skeddly will even re-assign an elastic IP address if needed, and register your instance with an Elastic Load Balancer.
Most importantly, save money by not running your instances when they do not need to run.
Launch Instances Automatically
Keeping your cloud applications responsive during peak periods often times requires launching extra instances... even if for only a short while.
Using Skeddly, you can launch new instances automatically at peak times. This helps ensure your customers don't experience slowdowns and non-responsive servers.
