    Amazon CloudWatch

    Cloud watch is great and essential if you decide to invest in AWS and have any need to monitor the health of all aspects of your VPC resources, or at the organizational level (multiple accounts). Another benefit of the service is constant upgrades at no additional costs; the software evolves to develop modules and interface improvements. For first-time users in AWS, this is going to take a bit to understand, so the learning curve to this metrics environment can seem overwhelming at first glance/use.

    Broadcom Automic Automation (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform)

    - We expanded our IT services without additional headcount. - Established IT audit and compliance controls. - Integrated a new oracle application with our existing database system. The software provides us with single visibility of what's happening in our organization. It's great for application monitoring and deployment while complying with our corporate IT governance structure and frameworks.

    Pros

    Amazon CloudWatch

    • It provides lot many out of the box dashboard to observe the health and usage of your cloud deployments. Few examples are CPU usage, Disk read/write, Network in/out etc.
    • It is possible to stream CloudWatch log data to Amazon Elasticsearch to process them almost real time.
    • If you have setup your code pipeline and wants to see the status, CloudWatch really helps. It can trigger lambda function when certain cloudWatch event happens and lambda can store the data to S3 or Athena which Quicksight can represent.

    Broadcom Automic Automation (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform)

    • Wide range of internal functions
    • Many interfaces (incoming and outgoing)
    • Modern, web-based user interface
    • Strong roadmap with topics such as containerisation and AI
    • High throughput possible (> 1 million executions per day)

    Cons

    Amazon CloudWatch

    • Memory metrics on EC2 are not available on CloudWatch. Depending on workloads if we need visibility on memory metrics we use Solarwinds Orion with the agent installed. For scalable workloads, this involves customization of images being used.
    • Visualization out of the box. But this can easily be addressed with other solutions such as Grafana.
    • By design, this is only used for AWS workloads so depending on your environment cannot be used as an all in one solution for your monitoring.

    • Could improve the framework.
    • Could improve the underlying coding standards.

    Support is effective, and we were able to get any problems that we couldn't get solved through community discussion forums solved for us by the AWS support team. For example, we were assisted in one instance where we were not sure about the best metrics to use in order to optimize an auto-scaling group on EC2. The support team was able to look at our metrics and give a useful recommendation on which metrics to use.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon CloudWatch

    Amazon CloudWatch is efficient, reliable and has a high speed response as compared to its competitors and it maximizes an application's life at the same time giving you the best load balance and storage, the services that Amazon CloudWatch provides are way better and cheaper for the prices attached to them.

    Broadcom Automic Automation (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform)

    I strongly recommend Automic Automation as the best automation platform on the market. The software comes with 24/7 technical support, continuous updates, and an easy-to-use interface for all IT staff to use. We've noticed a 90% reduction in SLA breaches, a reduction in software licensing overheads along with fewer system outages.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon CloudWatch

    • We were able to set up log streaming, retention, and simple downtime alerts within a few hours, having no prior experience with CloudWatch, freeing up our engineers to focus on more important business goals.
    • CloudWatch log groups have made it relatively easy to detect and diagnose issues in production by allowing us to aggregate logs across servers, correlate failures, isolate misbehaving servers, etc. Thanks to CloudWatch, we are generally able to identify, understand and mitigate most production fires within 10-15 minutes.
    • Choosing CloudWatch to manage log aggregation has saved us quite a bit of time and money over the past year. Generally, 3rd-party log aggregation solutions tend to get quite expensive unless you self-host, in which case you typically need to spend a fair amount of time setting up, maintaining, and monitoring these services.

    • Improved SAP automation thereby giving good returns.
    • Provides mail integration which further widens automation scope and profits.
