AWS Config vs stts: 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, stts is detailed as "Open source macOS app for monitoring the status of cloud services (AWS, Heroku, Twilio, etc)". With a click of the menubar icon, you can see the status of your favorite services. You can also be notified when a service goes down or gets restored. stts is designed to be unobtrusive, only giving you the information you need and allowing you to access the status page with a single click.
AWS Config and stts can be primarily classified as "Cloud Monitoring" tools.
