AWS OpsWorks vs ScriptRock: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS OpsWorks as "Model and manage your entire application from load balancers to databases using Chef". Start from templates for common technologies like Ruby, Node.JS, PHP, and Java, or build your own using Chef recipes to install software packages and perform any task that you can script. AWS OpsWorks can scale your application using automatic load-based or time-based scaling and maintain the health of your application by detecting failed instances and replacing them. You have full control of deployments and automation of each component . On the other hand, ScriptRock is detailed as "QA for DevOps". ScriptRock helps you scan, compare and control configurations and changes in the datacenter or the cloud.

AWS OpsWorks and ScriptRock belong to "Server Configuration and Automation" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by AWS OpsWorks are:

  • AWS OpsWorks lets you model the different components of your application as layers in a stack, and maps your logical architecture to a physical architecture. You can see all resources associated with your application, and their status, in one place.

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

  • End To End Visibility - Get visibility of your environment at the push of a button
