We primarily use CloudRanger to take EBS snapshots of volumes in our AWS accounts, as well as manage the life cycle of these snapshots, so we don't accumulate them and are automatically removed after a configurable amount of time. The secondary use we give to CloudRanger is to scheduled start/stop of EC2 instances. While these features can be accomplished within AWS natively (with some code, scripts, configuration, etc.) CloudRanger provides a turnkey solution that requires almost zero effort, without compromising security or the management tasks that need to be accomplished. One of the things in particular that CloudRanger does nicely is it takes EBS Snapshots on a schedule and saves them, but not only does it save it in the region where the instance resides, but it can also save a copy of the snapshot in another region, which is particularly useful for redundancy. Currently, it's used by the Engineering department, specifically software engineering.
