Pros: I've used Skeddly for years, in 4 companies so far, whenever I've used AWS. It makes best practices easy to implement, including backups, disaster recovery, and cost control. The feature list seems to expand every few months, so the value keeps expanding without programming or effort on my part.

The price is great -- no minimums, and very reasonable per-transaction billing.

When scheduled tasks are run, notifications can be emailed on success or failure. I also appreciate the way that logs are maintained inside Skeddly, so I don't have to manage their preservation and access.

While I could program these scheduled tasks myself, I much prefer having a tool that is developed and run independently. It's more reliable; and Skeddly's UI and documentation makes it much easier to delegate responsibility for it, compared to my own programs.

Cons: I haven't had any problems with Skeddly in my companies, but I can understand if other companies would prefer to keep these functions in-house. Skeddly is given a role in my AWS account which allows it to do its tasks, and this means that can get information about how my systems are organized. In addition, the log files that it preserves also reveal information about our configurations. It's obviously just a subset of what AWS already knows; but some companies could find it problematic.

Overall: Automated data backups and cost management

Simplification of system operations

Quick results, compared to doing it in-house

Pros: I love that I have been able to fully automate all of my AMI and snapshot creation for backup and replication. Skeddly makes it easy for me to take snaps of all my important data and ship it to multiple regions. At the same time the cleanup tasks are great and help keep snapshot and storage costs down because we don't have to think about it and we only keep the data we want. I have reached out to support on several occasions with questions and feel like my requests have been resolved on the first contact. The pricing is also great since you only pay per action.

Cons: Early on I made some poor choices in how I was tagging resources created by Skeddly and forgot several of my cleanup jobs were in test mode this lead to a few months of excessive charges for snapshot storage. A notification that a job was running, but in test mode for more than a week or something would be great. In the end the fault was my own and even though I tagged some resources poorly initially I was still able to clean it all up with Skeddly once I realized my error

Overall: Makes my life easier

Pros: Allows me to automate snapshots of my AWS environment. Because snapshots store data in different data centers, I now have a disaster recovery solution. When I did this with Windows servers and physical locations it could cost 10's or 100's of thousands of dollars, and it was complex and difficult to test. I get a bill from Skeddly for less than a dollar per month and I feel VERY confident that my critical IT systems are protected.

Cons: The interface could use some help, it is a LOT better than when I first started using it some years ago, but I still get confused. I don't log into it often, so it takes a few minutes to get the hang of it, and then I'm off and running.

Overall: I have an actual disaster recovery plan at a very low cost, hugely beneficial.

Pros: Automating backups on Amazon Web Services is normally a clunky experiences as it requires setting up a server, scripting, cron jobs, and knowing the volume ID's. With Skeddly, I login to an easy to use interface and customize backups using their friendly names. Not only that, email notifications are available for successful and failed backups, giving me peace of mind.

It also automatically backs up my 15+ Route53 DNS zones, containing hundreds of records. This has saved me in the past when I had to compare our current config to one from several months back to troubleshoot a DNS issue.

The pricing model is worth mentioning as well. Super affordable and you only pay for what you use.

Cons: It's kind of pain that everything is in Canadian dollar instead of USD, which is really only a minor annoyance.

Overall: Automated backups of my EC2 instances and Route53 Zones. This is a lifesaver and a must-have if you have critical data in the cloud.

Pros: It is exceedingly easy to use, and the reliability is outstanding. There is a wide breadth of services to choose to automate. My only regret is it is set it and forget...I like playing in Skeddly and doing new things. The pricing for the tool is reasonable and transaction based leaving the control of the budget in our hands which is so appreciated.

Cons: There is little to dislike; works well on mobile and feature requests are promptly handled. Quite amazing, really.

Overall: Easy automation of processes in Aws and even Aws GovCloud. Reasonable costs, reliable functionality. It's an ingenious product.

Pros: We have used to automate the creation EC2 snapshots for 6/7 years now, it have NEVER let us down and as a result we have never let our customers down.

Cons: Pricing confusion. The month on month price has gradually crept up and up over the years with no change to our service - March to April was a $6 increase despite being a day less usage. We've not had any price changes conveyed to us that I am aware.

Overall: Highly reliable, externalised backup initiation has meant we've never had to worry about whether our backups are current.

Pros: Saving money and never happened any outages or problems with the execution of my jobs. Prices are good, specially because they are in Canadian Dollars, cheapest in Brazil.

Cons: - Interface could be more graphical and easy to use, built with buttons, panels, etc.

- Suggestions to change names of AMI`s and avoid them repeat names too. Once I was generating AMI's with the same name, one killing other and I was thinking we had more backups in different times. In this case, I've put the "date and time" in the name at the end.

Pros: Large number of actions available to cover all of the possible scheduling options you could imagine within the AWS platform.

Setup is easy, and secure.

Support is fast and always knowledgeable.

Price is on a per action model, so no surprises, and no licensing tie-in.

Feature requests are met quickly, as are new features when a new offering is released by AWS.

Cons: The ability to have one action kick off another based upon a success or failure.

Overall: Cost saving, and the ability to run backups totally hands off.

Pros: I think it has a greate value for money, since the free tier is enough for me. It was also pretty easy to setup my use case.

Cons: I cannot think of anything that I didn't like when I setup my account or use case. Maybe the request for providing a credit card and not being entirely sure whether I would be charged after a month or not (in my opinion this was not very clear on the terms of use).

Overall: Costs reduction from not running a amazon instance 24/7.

Pros: It is very simple to setup start of AWS EC2 instances as long as RDS snapshots.

It works smoothly and reliably.

Cons: Setting up future dates where we don't want instances to start (holidays, ...) was not possible.

It was added on 20th july after multiple requests.

Overall: We need to schedule the start and stop of our Dev/Integration AWS environment only for work hours.

Doing this was very simple with Skeddly at cost effective pricing.

Ir delivers! Use it to start, stop and snapshot your AWS machines.

Pros: I know this product is going to work every time. Based on positive and negative filters, I am assured that I can capture every snapshot that I need within an instance while knowing that if a failure were to occur, I would get immediate notification - and once the problem is resolved, Skeddly keeps on going. Have not been at all displeased with the performance and the cost up to this point has been fair and reasonable. Very pleased

Overall: Only reason I give it a 9 is because I rarely recommend products - this, however, is one I would definitely consider.

Several times I setup automation and forgot to set the region - more prompting or highlighting potential issues or better - 'This is what will happen' support with some automation validation (e.g. checking that EC2 Server IDs are correct).

Thank you for this review William. I'm glad setup was easy and that you're lowering your AWS costs with Skeddly. I can appreciate the need for checks, as you suggest, and we'll take this into consideration in the future. -Matt

Skeddly was easy to setup and provides features not available within the AWS system.

Pros: So easy to define actions once you have linked it to your AWS account, and having multiple users for a Skeddly account is a great help too.

Cons: I would like to be able to one user identity which could access each of my client's Skeddly accounts, similar to the functionality in AWS which allows cross-account access.

Overall: It allows my clients to manage their AWS infrastructure with less support from me.

Simplify automation on the cheap!

Pros: Managed Instances allow me a very easy way to keep snapshots and costs to a minimum without having to do any of the setups myself! I also love being able to build actions that run against custom tags in my environment.

Cons: Having to pick one, it would probably be the lack of ability for me to manage multiple customers from a single login as we are consultants, we have recommended and use skeddly for several customers and having to juggle multiple logins can be a burden.

Overall: Saves me having to setup a cron server or tasks for each customer, and the functionality they have built in and services they are able to help automate is a HUGE time saver for me and it's a hard to beat deal!

Pros: I used Skeddly at my last company as well as my current company. It's simple interface and functionality help IT sleep at night, knowing Skeddly is always working for us.

It's cheap!

Cons: One feature request is for Skeddly to look at our AMIs/Volumes/Snapshots, then to compare that to the AMIs running as EC2, and recommend deleting ones that are not used.

We use it to perform maintenance on servers in the middle of the night - works brilliantly.

Pros: Has not failed us yet. Super easy to use. Helps us be pro-active with clients when we have a machine that has an issue and needs to be "up-sized"".

Cons: Only issue we have is that when an action is in progress (like an upsize of an AWS instance for 24 hours) we only get told of it's completion when the corresponding "downsize" occurs. It's a minor inconvenience.

Overall: Helps us sleep at nights!

Pros: It has been easy to use and very cost effective. You sort of just go in and set it and forget it. It supports MFA which is a good thing. Lots of other features which I hope to get to one of these days as well.

Cons: There are a few gui things which annoy me like having an edit button at the bottom of the page..so I have to scroll down to get to it which is often. But things like this are sort of trivial when it comes to the tool performing the task at hand which it does well.

Pros: It's easy of use. You can manage a lot of AWS tasks without writing one line of code. For example we switch off a lot of servers during the night. This saves us a lot of money.

Cons: It would be good to be able to group tasks. For example backup tasks, scaling tasks etc. Now we have a log lost and solve this using a naming convention.

Overall: Save a lot of money and time.

Comments: We've been using Skeddly for a couple of years and I continue to be impressed with both their offerings and support. We haven't found anything we can't do yet and their support is phenomenal. Sure, you can roll your own scheduling system with AWS, but why would you? The breadth and depth of Skeddly's action engine is staggering and costs peanuts to run.
