AWS Config vs Opsee: 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, Opsee is detailed as "Continuously test your services and deploy with confidence. Effortless AWS monitoring, built for developers". Effortless monitoring of your services and AWS environment. Built for on-call developers who want an easier way to be sure their services are working as expected.
AWS Config and Opsee can be primarily classified as "Cloud Monitoring" tools.

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