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.

ParkMyCloud is well-suited for companies that have large cloud data sets in AWS or Azure and need to closely monitor the usage costs associated with the cloud. It is well-suited for companies with a large spend on cloud resources, but not very useful for entities with smaller cloud budgets.

  • ParkMyCloud is great at notifications.
  • ParkMyCloud's user interface is great, and makes it easy to monitor activity.

Cons

AWS Config

  • Vendor [lock-in] as this is only available on AWS
  • [The] interface is dated and is [in] need of updating by AWS
  • Graphing is [...] not the easiest to configure

  • The simple user interface is sometimes too simple.
  • It's tough to tell whether the software actually does save money, but it seems like it does.
  • The default recommendations provided by company are just ok.

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.

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.

ParkMyCloud seems to be more cost effective than the alternatives I have run across. The software also seems to have a user interface that is second to none. I'm not sure on the other aspects of the software - latency, accuracy, ease of customization - compared to the other software tools. They seem to be good as well.

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

  • ParkMyCloud has had a positive ROI in that it has saved money by limiting resource usage.
  • ParkMyCloud has had a negative ROI in that it's hard to tell whether the time spent implementing the solution was worth it sometimes.
  • ParkMyCloud has been a positive overall experience because it gets IT professionals thinking about costs, something they're not apt at doing often.
