AWS OpsWorks

OpsWorks facilitates the management, monitoring and maintenance of the complete stack of Chef's infrastructure, to be part of AWS has a large community for support and assistance, it also concentrates a lot of documentation that can empower our devops area to shorten the curve Learning. Good tool to automate tasks for the company's devops and IT staff.

Tanium

Tanium is well suited for organizations where enterprise infrastructure has great significance and needs to be properly managed as well as protected. Most organizations depend upon their infrastructure to sustain so Tanium can be a boon for them to sustain in this competitive market. However, Tanium is less appropriate for the traditional offices that don't have or have a less online presence.

Pros

AWS OpsWorks

  • The interface is quite intuitive and allows you to discover and easily find what you want to do and what other features are within OpsWorks.
  • Chef integration is pretty seamless and there are a good set of options and operating systems to choose from
  • It makes things like auto scaling set up, either via load or time, more straight forward and intuitive than what you'd typically see via the EC2 console

Cons

AWS OpsWorks

  • Getting up and running with OpsWorks is a very technical and potentially time-consuming process. You need to know the ins and outs of Chef/Puppet if you really want to get into it and there isn't a convenient way to test out the environment locally so debugging can be time-consuming.
  • To take advantage of some of the newer AWS instance types you need to be running on a VPC, which again is a pain if you don't have a DevOps team.
  • The error logs and monitoring metrics in OpsWorks are pretty basic and haven't changed much over the years.

Tanium

  • One issue is its ring topology, as the data is stored in central hubs and pushed through its peer nodes. If the central hub fails, then the associated node will also result in failure.
  • Another problem is that all Tanium management is on premises requiring the customer to maintain it. If we want ask any help from Tanium support we always get a response like "you are maintaining it yourselves and it's your responsibility.
  • The Tanium User Interface could be improved a bit as, although the tool is rich in performance, a more impressive UI might really attract new customers.

Based on 2 answers
Unless you pay for a pricey support package getting support on OpsWorks will be pretty slow. Documentation is also relatively limited and sometimes hard to follow when compared to competitors. Generally, we've been able to get the answers we need from OpsWorks support when we run into problems but don't expect rapid responses.

Alternatives Considered

AWS OpsWorks

OpsWorks is an orchestration tool, basically you use it to specify the state you want your network to be in by specifying the state you want each resource (server instances, applications, storage) in which you want that resource to be. And specify the state in which you want each resource.The evaluated competitors have other benefits that in our case did not provide as many benefits as OpsWorks.

Tanium

Tanium is always my first choice, so much excellent feedback online from genuine users, easy to use in any system environment, and value for money, so many good things about Tanium stacks up against all the other competitors in the market. Tanium is one of the most reliable and trusted risk and compliance management software.

Return on Investment

AWS OpsWorks

  • OpsWorks has allowed some of our more simple application stacks to be implemented quickly and effectively. Whilst it is difficult to put actual numbers on it, it meant we could hit the ground running before tackling the more complex world of Cloudformation/Terraform to manage parts of our infrastructure.

Tanium

  • Enhanced security.
  • Increase in customer trust.
  • Overall increase in company revenue.
