What is Cloud Machine Manager?
Cloud Machine Manager (CMM) is an automation and scheduling tool that turns Amazon EC2 Servers on and off in response to user demand. It makes sure servers only switch on when they are needed, to save development companies, universities and small business a lot of money (more). It’s then up to you whether you keep the savings made or re-invest in bigger, better and more powerful servers!

We charge a flat fee of $5, $10 or $20 a month, depending on the size of your Amazon Server. We keep things simple which helps you easily keep track of cost as you scale your package to suit your needs, upgrading or cancelling instantly with no fuss.
If you still need convincing that CMM’s the right fit, sign up first for a month’s free trial and see how much you’re saving before committing to a full plan.
How long does Cloud Machine Manager take to set up?
You’ll be up and running in 5 minutes (Some technical knowledge may be required for set up).
Do I need to have technical knowledge to use Cloud Machine Manager?
You need to know less than it took to create your server in the first place! CMM is designed to be easy-to-use. Depending on how you use CMM, it can be as simple as pressing a button on an app to turn the servers needed on and off.

Does Cloud Machine Manager only cover the Amazon EC2 Cloud?
For now, yes – but this will change as our service expands. If you have a different Cloud you’d like to manage using CMM, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll tell you if it’s in our plans.
You’re going to have system access rights to my machines. What guarantees do I have that you won’t abuse those rights?
Amazon has a sophisticated rights management system that allows you to provide us with keys that have the bare minimum of privileges. In addition, you should be assured that Cloud Machine Manager is owned by our parent company, Blueberry Software Limited – a well respected, trustworthy company which has been trading since 2006, producing award winning software that is sold world-wide.
