Amazon Cloudwatch is a monitoring and observability service built for DevOps, developers, site reliability engineers (SREs), and IT managers. It provides actionable insights to monitor applications, understand and respond to system-wide performance changes, optimize resource utilization, and get a unified view of operational health. Large scale companies like Netflix, Adobe, and Airbnb use this technology to deliver a seamless customer experience.

This technology is widespread among tech giants. Known names include Intuit for infrastructure monitoring, Autodesk for application monitoring, Siemens for system observability, Epic Games for automated responses and Pearson for resource optimization. It is widely appreciated for its real-time monitoring capabilities, system-wide visibility and convenient dashboards.

Despite its widespread acceptance and use, working with Amazon Cloudwatch can present several challenges when it comes to operating within China due to certain speed and compatibility issues, along with a few legal and compliance factors at play in the country.
