Why cloud automation?

With cloud automation, you can be notified of any changes to your cloud infrastructure in real-time. This is useful when team members make changes to the infrastructure, the snapshot scheduler has been active, or you want to record infrastructure changes for auditing purposes.

Cloud Automation Features

Increased information flow

Actions are triggered by the events you set. Currently you have three actions to choose from: Slack webhooks (letting you automate slack messages), HTTP request (letting you send events to any application), or e-mails.

Increased service quality for your customers

If you manage the infrastructure of several clients, e.g. as an agency, freelancer or system house, you save valuable time with gridscale's cloud automation. Orchestrate all repetitive, time-consuming and error-prone tasks.

Intuitive interface

The easy-to-use interface of allows you to automate processes quickly, efficiently and intuitively without creating a line of code. We provide you with a diverse selection of triggers and actions, which are continuously expanded by our team.
