AWS Config vs CloudCheckr: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS Config as "Config gives you a detailed inventory of your AWS resources and their current configuration, and continuously records configuration changes". AWS Config is a fully managed service that provides you with an AWS resource inventory, configuration history, and configuration change notifications to enable security and governance. With AWS Config you can discover existing AWS resources, export a complete inventory of your AWS resources with all configuration details, and determine how a resource was configured at any point in time. These capabilities enable compliance auditing, security analysis, resource change tracking, and troubleshooting. On the other hand, CloudCheckr is detailed as "Analyze your AWS deployment to track resources, control costs, maintain security, and predict future needs". CloudCheckr provides otherwise unavailable visibility and analytics to remove the complexity from AWS usage. Our users quickly and efficiently gain control of their deployment, reduce costs, and optimize infrastructure performance.

AWS Config and CloudCheckr can be categorized as "Cloud Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by AWS Config are:

  • Configuration Visibility
  • Fully Managed
  • Easy to get started

On the other hand, CloudCheckr provides the following key features:

  • Resource Control
