Comparing Resoto to Other Solutions
Resoto is an open-source infrastructure operations platform for cloud engineers, site reliability engineers, security teams, and cloud finance professionals.
Resoto consists of two layers:
Data Integration Layer
Consolidates metadata from cloud resources into a single inventory. An ETL process that extracts configuration data from cloud APIs and loads it into a graph database.
Scans the inventory, generates metrics and detects changes to resources. Detected changes can trigger commands to perform configuration updates.
One of Resoto's unique attributes is the integration of these two layers into a single product. The data Resoto collects becomes input for governance checks and code performing configuration changes on resources.
There are existing solutions offered by cloud providers and independent software vendors that build an inventory of your cloud or offer similar functionality to Resoto.
Resoto can be used alongside or as a replacement for these solutions.
Resoto vs. AWS Config
Resoto is an open-source alternative to AWS Config.
Resoto vs. AWS Nuke
Resoto can be used as an alternative to AWS Nuke.
Resoto vs. Cartography
Resoto can be used as an alternative to Cartography.
Resoto vs. Google Cloud Asset Inventory
Resoto is an open-source alternative to Google's Cloud Asset Inventory.
Resoto vs. Gruntwork cloud-nuke
Resoto can be used as an alternative to Gruntwork's cloud-nuke.
Resoto vs. Steampipe
Resoto can be used as an alternative to Steampipe.
Common categories for Resoto use cases include:
- Cloud asset discovery
- Cloud asset inventory
- Cloud configuration management database (cloud CMDB)
- Cloud asset management
- Cloud security posture management (CSPM)
- Cloud management tooling (CMT)
- Cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM)
- Security automation, orchestration, and response (SOAR)
- Infrastructure-as-code (IaC)
While coverage of these use cases through a single tool may seem overly broad, it's a result of Resoto's architecture.
Resoto's approach is to build a horizontal data layer with clean, tested, and documented infrastructure data.
Resoto prioritizes exploration, flexibility, and extensibility over siloed use cases. Resoto commands are written in code. Users can write Resoto code tailored to their exact needs.
