This is a monitoring service for AWS cloud resources and the applications you run on AWS. You can use Amazon CloudWatch to collect and track metrics, collect and monitor log files, set alarms, and automatically react to changes in your AWS resources, the company says. Update: Sounds great — until portions of Amazon Web Services go dark, like they did in early March 2017 due to user error. Hence the need for multi-cloud management strategies.
