Overall Satisfaction with Amazon CloudWatch

We're using CloudWatch for gathering all our key metrics, from business data to IoT sensors data. CloudWatch makes it very easy and convenient to set-up threshold-based alarms and it also integrates natively with AWS Lambda and SNS, so we receive both email and SMS notifications when something's off-balance.
  • Collects metrics from multiple sources.
  • Integration with SNS and Lambda.
  • Dashboard chart types could be broadened.
  • It's very fast and effortless to set-up, hence the fast ROI.
  • Inexpensive and cloud-based.
CloudWatch's native integration with other AWS tools such as AWS and Lambda make it a better fit and simpler to set up than most of the competitors.
Support from Amazon has been helpful when needed. I enjoyed the fact that the support agent that received the request will follow-up during the entire support workflow.
