We are kind of consultants. We maintain our customers' environment on AWS.

We always use whatever's the latest because that's all we have access to. Because we deploy to other companies, we do public and hybrid clouds. Some of it is hybrid, some of it would be private as well. The majority is probably hybrid, but we're deploying for customers. Most of it's around optimizing utilization, their cloud utilization. They're making sure that they're getting the most out of their in-cloud environments and their instances. Making sure that there's no strange behavior in the environment. That's really what we're trying to do. And that's what Cloud Watch really helps with, is it's making sure it's collecting, monitoring, analyzing, all the things that are going on within their instance, so that we can optimize it better. And if there are any anomalies, anything that is out of the norm, then we're able to catch it and fix it pretty quickly. The ability of it to detect anomalies, and setting dynamic alarms, and automating a lot of the actions. I think that's a huge benefit that the companies have seen.

We primarily use the solution for budgeting and monitoring for abnormal behaviour.

We are primarily using the solution to monitor some of the instances that we have on Amazon for our testing development. It is also the go-to solution used by our organization to track logs and organize metrics across all applications deployed on Amazon Web Services
