        If you have a single server, checking log files is as easy as SSHing to it and viewing logs. When you move to the container world, with many servers, you need a place to aggregate and search through all of your logs. CloudWatch provides us with this and it was trivial to setup.

        CloudWatch is “on by default” in Amazon. And by just configuring a few alarms you can have a near-zero-cost monitoring service of your own.
