Software Description:

Dropbox is hosting service that allows users to create special folders on their computers, which are then synchronized, accessing the same folder, regardless of which computer is used to view it.
Anything users add to Dropbox will automatically show up on all their computers, phones and even the Dropbox website — so they can instantly access it from any location.
It also makes sharing and collaboration easier, by inviting other users to any folder in Dropbox.

Software Description:

ParkMyCloud is a SaaS platform that automatically identifies and eliminates public cloud resource waste, reducing spending by 65% or more — think “Nest for the cloud.” It does this by turning resources off when they're not needed - for example, non-production resources used for development/staging/testing are typically not needed outside of a 40-hour work week.

AWS, Azure, and Google users such as McDonald’s, Sysco Foods, Unilever, Avid, and Sage Software have used ParkMyCloud to cut their cloud spending by millions of dollars. ParkMyCloud helps companies like these optimize and govern cloud usage by integrating cost control into their DevOps processes.
