CloudCron: From cron jobs to the cloud

20 minutes



A Cron is a time-based job scheduler that enables Unix users to execute commands or scripts automatically.
This automation is a useful resource but, until now, it was a little more difficult to do it in the cloud while having a maintainable setup.
The solutions you can find to run a cron on the cloud may not meet your expectations or be extremely complicated to use and this is where CloudCron comes in handy.
Cloud is the new default and you should be able to keep using the same crons you have now without having to worry about scalability. Give it the cron file you want to use and CloudCron and it will create the jobs for you as CloudWatch Events in AWS.
