    AWS Config

    It's really good if your infrastructure services is all in AWS, that means everything could be audited and monitored using AWS config. You also can create alarms to notify you or your team about any changes on your AWS resources which is very useful to prevent abuse if you have a fairly large team. It's also very useful whenever some third party wants to audit your AWS resources, if you have a fairly comprehensive AWS config configured, the auditing process will be easy since they only need to look at your AWS config setup.

    CloudCheckr

    CloudCheckr is fantastic for those that are purely in the Cloud as it provides everything you need under one roof for a comprehensive configuration and usage monitoring tool. It has SysLog capabilities though so you can farm out the alerts into a SIEM or other log management system, so hybrid environments could also benefit from its use.

    Pros

    AWS Config

    • The ability to track changes in AWS is paramount, AWS config allows you to do this
    • Allows the auditing of an AWS account
    • Can view history of an account that has AWS config enabled

    CloudCheckr

    • Detailed Best Practices. It's important to align your cloud to industry best practices for security and cost—it just performs better if it's used the way it's meant to be used. AWS is very flexible, and that's great when you have special requirements, but you've got to at least know when you're using something in a non-standard way so you can think through the implications.
    • Cost Reduction. Some recommendations are almost impossible to make at least for our setup, but many, many others are easy. We only have to log into CloudCheckr every few months and make a few changes for it to more than pay for itself.
    • Right-Sizing. This is related to the other points, but for some reason is separate from their cost module. The metrics it's able to pull only tell half the story, so it's good to verify it's sizing recommendations before making changes. But it does show you what instances to focus on first, and even if you choose a slightly different size to move it to, it does clearly indicate it's current size isn't appropriate. And this works both ways, if the size is too big, you can save some cash by making it smaller, but if it's too small, you want to be sure to scale up before you run into performance problems.

    Cons

    AWS Config

    • It's only AWS, no third party.
    • Not the most intuitive interface, but with a little getting used to it is OK.

    CloudCheckr

    • CloudCheckr features have a tendency to break without warning. Functionality in place for months could suddenly stop working.
    • CloudCheckr support often delays work on support tickets for fixing broken application functionality.
    • The CloudCheckr platform and documentation website often crash or experience performance degradation.
    • CloudCheckr cost reporting is often impacted by faulty code or broken report functionality. This can contribute to a low level of confidence in CloudCheckr's ability to deliver accurate cost reporting.

    Overall, CloudCheckr covers all our AWS monitoring needs and great integration through SysLog into our SIEM to capture alerts for investigation. The reports are great and allow for an easy daily review. Small improvements could be made to the interface and better filtering in places would be good. Great product and the price is fair.

    Would rate lower for other workloads but for AWS workloads its simple to set up, cost effective and customisable. Primary use case is compliance from a governance perspective.

    I do not know or have used any other product in AWS cloud space that matches what AWS Config provides. We have some custom built monitoring and governance, however that is there because AWS Config does not provide it currently.

    CloudCheckr

    There are a few products out there that'll do an aspect or two of what CloudCheckr does, but I honestly couldn't find anything nearly as comprehensive as CloudCheckr.

    Return on Investment

    AWS Config

    • A "Big Fish" company that is more concerned about the security of their data came aboard with us more easily since they trust us with the AWS config setup
    • Less time to debug or finding out issue on infrastructure whenever it happens
    • Easy and fast to roll back whenever changes that caused issues happen

    CloudCheckr

    • CloudCheckr has allowed us to increase resell margins as an MSP.
    • CloudCheckr has made us aware of cost savings opportunities that exceed the price of the platform itself.
    • CloudCheckr has given us additional visibility that has allowed us to manage and understand cloud computing costs.
