Getting Started with the CloudCheckr Self-Hosted Version

Overview

Security and data privacy considerations within enterprise and public sector organizations often make Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models unrealistic. These organizations recognize the benefits of using AWS but sometimes struggle with the intricacies of 3rd party data access. The CloudCheckr Self-Hosted AMI provides all of the capabilities in a self-hosted environment, which solves the data privacy and security concerns.

There are two types of CloudCheckr’s Self-Hosted Offering:

The All-In-One Version

This self-hosted version allows customers to launch CloudCheckr in an AWS account within their own virtual private cloud (VPC) on a single Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance. It can be deployed in various sized Amazon EC2 instances to accommodate small, medium, large, and enterprise- class environments. The self-hosted version communicates directly with the AWS API. It does not communicate with CloudCheckr’s network and user data does not leave the user’s environment. The customer is the administrator of CloudCheckr and in charge of running the infrastructure for the software.

The Multi-Tiered Version

This self-hosted version allows customers to launch CloudCheckr in an AWS account within their own virtual private cloud (VPC) using separate EC2 instances and RDS databases in an efficient model based on the CloudCheckr SaaS offering. It can be deployed in various sized Amazon EC2 instances to accommodate small, medium, large, and enterprise-class environments. As with the All-In-One Self-Hosted version of CloudCheckr, the Multi-Tiered version communicates directly with the AWS API. It does not communicate with CloudCheckr’s network and user data does not leave the user’s environment. The customer is the administrator of CloudCheckr and in charge of running the infrastructure for the software.
