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.

Morpheus

Morpheus is well suited for those who want to have a management pane of glass that will allow you to see what you are consuming and how you are consuming it. It also ties into many other types of software and the development team seems to be constantly improving the product. That lends it to being a bit complicated. If you want something easy to set up, this isn't your product.

Pros

AWS Config

  • It can help you define rules for provisioning and configuring of your AWS. We use it for this purpose.
  • It maintains configuration history. So you can use the AWS Management Console, API, or CLI to obtain details of past configurations
  • It gives you a configuration snapshot of all of your AWS resources and you can store it in AWS S3.
  • You can integrate it with AWS CloudTrail to correlate configuration changes to particular events in your account.

  • Ties into multiple public and private clouds for single management plane.
  • True multi-tenancy.

Cons

AWS Config

  • Vendor lock-in, no easy migration path for example if you want to move some workloads to Azure, you'd not be able to lift and shift.
  • Only at an AWS resource perspective - cannot do desired state configuration at an OS level (which makes sense but be good if you could even as a separate feature within AWS Config).

Performance

Based on 4 answers
The performance has never been an issue for us, the dashboard gives us real-time monitoring and the alert sends us the notification within less than a minute of it happening, this applies to all of the monitored resources on AWS. However we can't (or probably haven't figured out how to) integrate with any other third party services, so we can't really evaluate how it integrates with other services

We have always been able to reach the support organization at Morpheus on the rare event we needed them. They have been nothing but helpful.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Config

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.

We previously were using VRA. VRA, while some of the new versions look interesting is hard for both administration as well as end user consumption.

Return on Investment
