Pros
"The best feature I like about CloudCheckr CMx High Security is its simplicity. I love that it's not rocket science to use the solution. Even if you're not familiar with the cloud, you can easily figure out how to use CloudCheckr CMx High Security. You can use AWS, you can use Azure, and you can use GCP with the solution because the integration is quite simple. You can also use multi-cloud with it, and you could see the billing part. You'll have complete visibility into your cost which I love about the solution. I also love that data on any security issues and vulnerabilities are available on the go with CloudCheckr CMx High Security. You don't need to do anything different. Just run the scan and you'll have all these open findings in the tool, in terms of the priority level, so if it's critical, it will tell you, "It's critical," and you need to fix it right away.""The solution is mostly stable.""It will automatically suggest areas for optimization.""The initial setup is straightforward.""The most valuable feature of CloudCheckr CMx High Security is granular reporting. Additionally, the user interface is easy to use.""It's one of the leading players for cloud optimization. It's hard to find anything better.""The solution is scalable for our purposes."

"I am impressed with the product's ability to create dynamic catalogs.""I am impressed with the product's reports.""The optimization of the solution is quite interesting.""The stability of the solution is very good. We haven't had any issues with it.""The multi-tenancy feature has been very helpful for our clients. It has been working fine and seamlessly for them. Its interface is also very simplified, and it is also an open and easy-to-scale solution.""The solution is compatible and integrates with various infrastructures or providers.""Red Hat CloudForms is stable once it is up and running.""The most valuable features of Red Hat CloudForms are the benefit of the collective functionality."

Cons
"Many features still need to be implemented in this tool.""Self-healing could be a bit smoother and a bit cleaner, easier to access and more functional. That would help.""The solution needs to work better with larger capacities of data.""What needs to be improved in CloudCheckr CMx High Security is integration. All the clouds are going quite fast, for example, all the cloud providers: Microsoft, Google, etc. CloudCheckr CMx High Security is good with AWS, no doubt about it, but with Azure and Google Cloud, I find that the solution is slow in that direction. If the vendor planned for CloudCheckr CMx High Security to be automated just for AWS, then it does make sense. If not, if the vendor is also targeting good integration with Google and Microsoft, then CloudCheckr CMx High Security integration needs improvement, in particular, it has to be faster. At the moment, its integration with Azure is not as good as its integration with AWS. With GCP, integration is nowhere.""The solution must improve its user interface.""CloudCheckr CMx High Security is complex. There are a lot of menus, and if you do not know what you are looking for you can get lost. However, the interface is self-explanatory. It's easy to understand where to go to get what you want.""The performance of the tool really needs to be improved."

More CloudCheckr Cons →

"All of the areas of Red Hat CloudForms could improve. It doesn't do half of the things that it says it can do out of the box. It takes configuration to make any of it work, which is not uncommon for solutions similar to this. However, it is frustrating.""The solution is still quite immature.""Red Hat CloudForms could improve by allowing more customization of reports. We have to do a lot of coding to accomplish what we want. Additionally, the compatibility with the multi-cloud could improve. The latter versions of the solution removed Google support and the cost comparison between other clouds was high.""Because the solution needs to integrate with other products that surround it, there is a lot of configuration required, and this can be quite complex. It's not as easy as it is with, for example, VMware.""The solution's provisioning engine needs to be improved.""I have issues with the solution's permissions. Unlike VMware, the product doesn't allow folder-type permissions.""It is difficult to create a complete dashboard that includes all the needed features or catalogs.""The complexity of the solution is a bit high in comparison to VMware."

Pricing and Cost Advice
