Schedule RDS Instances

Automate start and stop times for AWS RDS instances with schedules

Select your instances

Choose which RDS instances to target by using your native AWS tags. Using GorillaStack’s advanced logic you can create reusable Tag Groups. You can set rules for RDS instances running PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server.


Create a schedule

Decide when to turn your RDS instances on or off. You’re able to start up an RDS instance without needing a rule to bring it back down again or vice-versa. You can also set up multiple schedules targeting different Tag Groups.
