Today, AWS Systems Manager announces the launch of Quick Setup for Resource Scheduler, based on AWS Solutions’ Instance Scheduler. Quick Setup for Resource Scheduler provides a user interface in the console which enables you to easily configure schedules for your instances to optimize compute capacity and save costs across accounts and Regions in your Organization. In this way, you can ensure that EC2 instances only run when they are really needed. For example, you can schedule that targeted instances stop running outside of weekly business hours, during weekends or bank holidays. To learn more, visit this blog.

To get started, choose Quick Setup from the Systems Manager left navigation menu and select Resource Scheduler in the Quick Setup Library. Systems Manager Quick Setup is available in: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), and South America (São Paulo) AWS Regions.
