I have extended the library of scripts for automatic scheduling. There was already a script to auto Scale BM Database and ATP/ADW instances. New is the autoOnOff script for compute instances.
Based on a pre-defined tag in the namespace “Schedule” you can now automatically power on or off compute instances. This will not delete any of the data, but just powers the VM instance on or off. When compute instances are powered off, this will be done by a “softstop”, this means the instance will gracefully shutdown by sending a shutdown command to the operating system.
You can find the script here:
