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 is most suited where there multi cloud platform as VCloud suite provides most 2 important licences i.e. Vsphere 9India's leading hypervisor) and Vrealize Suite which helps to automate and also simplies IT management by making the solution most agile, efficient and easy to use. If there is a simple environment with just few servers where there is need for only 2-3 VMs, i will not recommend this.
Read full review Pros 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.

Read full review Cons 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. Read full review There is nothing exactly like cons but one must should check all the features, it can be confusing at the times. It can be expensive as compared to some other products available in the market. Implementation can be little tricky, should done by Vmware engineer Read full review Usability
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.

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.

VCloud mostly provides cloud management platform, all others also provide the same plus some other features so, Vcloud can be little less expensive in comparison to other solutions available in market. Also, it's very easy to use and deploy and manage your cloud platform. It is widely used by mid scale as well as large scale companies.
