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.

It seems to be adequate for those companies that have a lot of information and have the need for many of their workers to integrate or can visualize their information quickly and at any time. It helps to save space on the company's servers and it is very easy to access, it is also easy to use and understand, and it is a scalable storage system

Pros

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

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.

  • Internet access is needed at all times
  • If many people manage the cloud they can make the mistake of deleting some files
  • Confusing legal coverage, there are countries that do not have data protection laws

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.

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.

Basically this cloud is much more practical than others, it is fast and have greater storage capacity, but in reality, almost all cloud applications have the same function.
