Cloud Servers are billed for every hour they are running, regardless of their actual usage.
Any non-production resources (such as development, testing, and staging) are only needed during a limited amount of time, 40 to 60 hours per week.
This means that if cloud servers are left running 24/7, 65% or more of their cost is wasted.
We call them zombie servers.
A workaround is to schedule the uptime and the downtime of a cloud server, which leads to 2 problems:
Hakuna dynamically starts and stops cloud servers accordingly to the incoming network requests.
HakunaCloud works with HTTPS, RDP and triggers based on metrics - CPU usage, load or custom metrics emitted by your service.
