This week, nOps launched a new feature nSwtich Tag-Based Scheduling. Schedule-by-Tag empowers users to take full control of their cloud costs by aligning resource usage with demand.
This innovative feature allows you to schedule resources by adding a tag, empowering your developers to manage resource tags effortlessly using any Infrastructure-as-Code solution.

How Does It Work?

Tag-Based Scheduling leverages the power of AWS EventBridge to automatically pause instances such as EC2 instances, AutoScaling groups, RDS instances, RDS clusters, EKS node groups, or EKS clusters when they are not in use.

With Schedule-by-Tag, managing your AWS resources becomes simplified. You can create schedules without initially attaching resources, making it a seamless process. The key lies in copying the tag value generated by our service and adding it to the desired resources using either the AWS console or popular Infrastructure-as-Code frameworks like Terraform.

nOps continuously monitors the tags assigned to your resources and automatically adds them to the Scheduler as soon as it detects them, ensuring optimal cost savings and resource utilization.

Take control of your costs by aligning resource usage with demand. Users can set up templates to automatically add dev, QA, or staging resources to a pre-defined schedule and ensure that they’re only being charged for resources when your global teams need to use them.
