Cloud Custodian enables users to be well managed in the cloud. The simple YAML DSL allows you to easily define rules to enable a well-managed cloud infrastructure, that's both secure and cost optimized. It consolidates many of the ad-hoc scripts organizations have into a lightweight and flexible tool, with unified metrics and reporting.
Besides just providing reports of issues, Custodian can actively enforce the security policies you define.
Setup off-hours to save you money, by turning-off resources when they're not being used. Garbage collect unused resources by looking into utilization metrics.
Custodian can be run locally, on an instance, or Serverless in AWS Lambda.
Cloud Custodian is open source and free for everyone to use.
Use Custodian to build complex workflows or simple queries, millions of policies can be constructed using our easy to read DSL.
