Raise Efficiency and Productivity of your cloud

With cloud automation, you can be notified of any changes to your cloud infrastructure in real time. This is useful, for example, if team members make changes to the infrastructure, the snapshot scheduler has taken a snapshot, or you want to record infrastructure changes for auditing purposes. This way you can react fast to changes.

Questions and Answers

Features, prices and more details

How is the Cloud Automation Service calculated?

Like all our products, you only pay for cloud automation if you use it. So there are no costs for you if Cloud Automation is not active.

Cloud automation is made up of two components.
1. events that enter and are processed from your infrastructure into Cloud Automation
2. actions that are executed based on a defined task. For example, sending an e-mail.

You pay 0,01 € for each incoming event and only for the respective action if they are executed. Slack-Webhook, HTTP requests and e-mails are free of charge. Therefore, only the incoming events are currently calculated.


Are further actions planned, if so which?

Yes, we are constantly working on our Cloud Automation Service. The feedback and ideas of our customers set the direction and will soon produce new triggers, filters and actions. Soon you will have direct access to our API and will be able to create, start or scale servers automatically!


How do I activate the Cloud Automation Service?

You can activate and configure our Cloud Automation Service directly in the panel at https://my.gridscale.io/Expert/CAS. You can start right after activation.


What actions can I execute with the Cloud Automation Service?

Currently you have three actions to choose from. Slack webhooks, HTTP requests and e-mails.
Slack webhooks allow you to automate slack messages. So you can define a slack message and e.g. inform yourself or your team when snapshots have been taken.
HTTP requests allow you to send events in your infrastructure to any application via HTTP request. You can access dashboards, logging service or your own applications directly via our cloud automation.
You can also have text or HTML emails sent to you and your team when the configured event is triggered in your infrastructure.
