Cloud Custodian is an open source tool used by hundreds of organizations to bring automated governance, security, compliance, and cost optimization to their cloud environments. It provides governance as code capability, via a YAML DSL rules engine, and integrates with serverless for real-time reaction to events. Cloud Custodian is an Open Source project with an active community that has developed the following key features:

Ensure real-time compliance and go beyond reporting to actively enforce the policies you define.

Manage costs by setting up off-hours to turn off resources when they’re not being used and garbage collecting unused resources.

Run anywhere with our multi-cloud support (AWS, GCP, Azure), and simplify operations with serverless execution.

Build with simple DSL to construct millions of policies–complex workflows or simple queries.
