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.

OpsCompass

We previously had separate products to manage Azure and AWS, each with different capabilities, and it was very complex for our team to go back and forth and try to make sense of each environment. OpsCompass is very well suited to give you a single view of our entire cloud environment. OpsCompass also brings excellent compliance policies. We were not highly skilled with these policies, but the product made it easy to perform an assessment of our current state and identify areas where we had non-compliance issues. CIS policies were a great area to start and we later tried the Microsoft 365 policies, which were also helpful. More policies would be great to see.

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.

OpsCompass

  • Quick inventory of all my cloud resources
  • Detects changes to my cloud resources--including the source of the changes (user or system)
  • Cost impacts of changes to my cloud infrastructure

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).

  • I would like to see more integrations to help surface alerts. Slack would be great, as an example.
  • An imbedded tour or onboarding would help our new users, but overall, the product is pretty easy to figure out

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

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.

In this price range, we didn't find any other tools that provide this degree of cloud resource visibility. It's been an efficiency game-changer. I hope we'll see new modules as they expand their features to include active resource management policies. They've done such a good job of anticipating the needs of our CloudOps team, I plan to evaluate those new features (if/when they arrive).

Return on Investment

AWS Config

  • Security awareness. With multiple teams deploying provides easy visibility on any security risks. Security breaches would have a substantial impact on business so a vital investment with little costs.

OpsCompass

  • Our team was able to do roughly 30% more with the product. The automation helps us spot issues without a lot of manual work
  • We identified changes that would have had a massive cost impact--spinning up or forgetting about infrastructure we didn't need.
  • OpsCompass prevents configuration drift and maintains a healthy state across multi-clouds.
