About AWS Config

AWS Config enables operational troubleshooting and change management by constantly monitoring and logging resource configuration changes. It facilitates auditing of resource compliance as per organizational policies using a compliance-as-code framework. This encompasses automatic configuration assessments and ongoing security auditing. It supports resources on AWS, on-site and other clouds, thus helping reduce costs by optimizing resource usage.

AWS Config pricing

AWS Config charges depend on the number of recorded configuration items, rule evaluations, and conformance pack evaluations. Charges per item can be halted monthly, but past records are accessible. Rule evaluation costs fluctuate based on quantity and defined ranges. Conformance pack costs are based on evaluations per tier. Consolidated billing reduces costs through total evaluations. Additional costs include Amazon S3 and SNS standard rates, and AWS Lambda rates for custom rules.
