CloudScale.io exists to help businesses quickly and easily take advantage of one of AWS's powerful features, OnDemand compute power.
The ability to only pay for what you use with AWS is one of the big selling points, but also one of the items that most business don't seem to introduce until they are more mature.
CloudScale is here to help by providing a quick and easy way to schedule when your servers are running, and when they are not.
Not all servers are the same, so to make it easier to manage, we have created the ability to group your services together so that they can be treated as a single environment.
Firstly you specify which Environment a specific service belongs to.
(eg 'Development' or 'Testing' environment)
Secondly you order the services within an Environment into Layers.
(eg 'Webserver layer' or 'Database layer' of a specific environment)
See Overview of environment structure for more details.
