Overall Satisfaction with AWS Config

Having migrated to the AWS cloud over the last year and a half, we started with AWS from the beginning. It is great to check if your implemented resources align with what you want and/or AWS best practices and to keep a history of all the configuration changes. Both are very helpful for any compliance question you might encounter.
  • Great to track config changes and helpful for troubleshooting.
  • Great for compliance questions you might get.
  • It's only AWS, no third party.
  • Not the most intuitive interface, but with a little getting used to it is OK.
  • Auditability
  • Troubleshooting: who did what when.
  • Alerting on changes can be setup so issues can be solved quickly.
As this is native to AWS, we didn't consider anything else. It checks and monitors AWS resources so to check and monitor any other services we use other software.
