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: 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.

Pros: Easy, guided way to setup in minutes. Low cost alternative to complex policy creation in AWS and other Cloud environments.

Cons: Nothing really, it is great overall. Maybe adding multi-factor authenticationto the mix would be a nice touch to increase security a bit more.

Pros: Puts a nice clean interface in front of a more complex task in Amazon, but which can have huge wins. It does what is says in a clean, intuitive way. It appears we thought out and works, even when I had got stuck, I found my way.

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: 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: 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: - Ease of use.
- Reliability.
- I see SAML has been added which is cool ¿ I was about to complain about that being missing. :)

Cons: I'd love a better summarised view of billing reports. If I want to see what jobs are costing more this month versus last month, I have to take the detailed itemised bills, and export / aggregate / manipulate the items manually. Perhaps Skeddly could integrate some of this reporting, or even just provide a really quick & easy way to get the itemised bills exported into google sheets or similar.

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: 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: 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: 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.

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.
