Example 1

You have an m5.2xlarge Linux EC2 instance in the Ireland region with a 50GiB gp2 O/S disk and an additional 5TiB gp2 disk.

The monthly cost for this system is $863.66

However, the system is only used 12 hours a day, Monday to Friday.

There is no need to pay for the resources when they are not required.

Example 2

You have created a total of ten c5.xlarge Linux EC2 instances each with a single 250GiB gp2 disk in the Ireland region for a project.

The monthly cost for these systems is $1,832.05

Due to unforseen circumstances, the project is put on hold for a month and does not want to lose any of the provisioned infrastructure.

our standard shutdown scheduler

Put the instance into a shutdown scheduler to save the compute costs when the instance is not required.

You are now saving 64.28% of compute costs.

Your system now costs you $665.57/month a 22.94% saving.

However, you’re still paying for all your volumes!


our standard shutdown scheduler

Put the instances into a shutdown scheduler to save the compute costs when the instance is not required.

You are now saving 100% of compute costs over the month.

Your system now costs you $275/month a 84.99% saving.

However, you’re still paying for all your volumes!

enable clouddown technology

Enabling CloudDown Technology allows you to additionally save EBS Volume costs without data loss.

You are now saving 64.28% of both compute and volume costs.

Your system now costs you $308.49 a 64.28% saving!
