ParkMyCloud, an enterprise app for optimizing and reducing cloud spend, now supports auto-scheduling for Google Cloud Platform in addition to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

ParkMyCloud launched its ‘Nest for the cloud’ platform in September 2015 to enable public cloud users to automatically turn off idle cloud instances, “saving 20-60%” on their cloud bills every month. The company has seen rapid customer growth, and customers now include companies such as McDonald’s, Fox, Capital One, Sage Software, and Wolters Kluwer.

“Google has made enterprises a priority target for their cloud offering this year, so we knew it was imperative that we support these users as quickly as possible,” said Jay Chapel, CEO of ParkMyCloud.

With the addition of Google Cloud Platform, ParkMyCloud now provides continuous cost control for these three public cloud providers.

ParkMyCloud is the first vendor in the single-purpose cost control space to support all three major public cloud providers,” said William Fellows, 451 Research Vice President. “This is great news for Azure and Google Cloud users. As companies mature in their use of public cloud and Google’s cloud becomes more relevant, cost control becomes even more of a priority.” 

With the “milestone” of Google Cloud Platform support achieved, ParkMyCloud plans to broaden its offerings within each cloud provider by adding cost-savings functionality for services beyond compute, while continuing to provide innovative features that would allow customers to integrate continuous cost control “seamlessly” into their DevOps processes. 

“Google has made enterprises a priority target for their cloud offering this year, so we knew it was imperative that we support these users as quickly as possible,” said Jay Chapel, CEO of ParkMyCloud. “We’ve helped Fortune 500 and multinational corporations achieve millions in savings on AWS and Azure, and we’re looking forward to doing the same for users of Google Cloud Platform.”
