Frequently Asked Questions

MontyCloud DAY2™ is an event driven intelligent cloud management SaaS platform that helps customers simplify management and operations of their modern cloud applications and services. DAY2™ deeply integrates with the native APIs of the AWS resources such as compute, storage, network, databases, container and serverless infrastructure, as well as management and security tooling such as systems management, monitoring, event logs and identity and access management. With DAY2™ you can organize resources across AWS Accounts and AWS Regions by department, applications and users. You can manage, monitor, alert, and remediate alerts from these resources across AWS Accounts and AWS Regions automatically through centrally defined policies.

You should use the DAY2™ Blueprints, because these blueprints enable you to easily deploy compliant AWS environments for your users, developers and applications. The DAY2™ Blueprints encapsulate provisioning best practices based on years of experience of our AWS certified experts in large, complex customer environments. In addition to best practice experience, these blueprints are built to AWS Well-Architected standards, ensuring you have the best environment for your needs.  And, DAY2™ Blueprints prelude DAY2™ CloudOps such as inventory, monitoring and management.

You can find more information on the AWS Well-Architected Framework at https://aws.amazon.com/architecture/well-architected/

You can purchase DAY2™ Blueprints through montycloud.com. DAY2™ is available in two service plans. First is DAY2™ Standard, with which you can manually execute DAY2™ Blueprints in your AWS Management Console. Second is DAY2™ Premium, where you can orchestrate DAY2™ Blueprints and immediately manage the AWS resources deployed by DAY2™.

DAY2™ integrates DAY2™ Blueprints with your AWS account and deploys the AWS resources in the AWS account of your choice. First, you on-board your AWS Account to DAY2™ with read permissions. This ensures MontyCloud cannot make any changes to your AWS environment. All you have to do next, is select the blueprint you want from the DAY2™ Blueprints library, provide the inputs and run it. This launches your AWS CloudFormation console where you can manually execute the blueprint. Your AWS resources will be deployed. If you already have a MontyCloud account, you sign in through app.montycloud.com and directly access the DAY2™ Blueprints library.

You should use DAY2™ Premium because with DAY2™ you can further simplify AWS resource and application management, deploying your resources in the background without switching between your AWS Management Console and your DAY2™ Dashboard. In addition to inventory and resource organization, with DAY2™ you can automate routine management tasks such as reduce IAM Role sprawl with RBAC, monitor the resources, scan VMs for Patch compliance and protect VMs through snapshots. With DAY2™ Premium you can immediately gain granular control over your AWS environment.

DAY2™ Premium works in the same way as DAY2™ Standard. DAY2™ integrates with your AWS account and deploys the AWS resources in the AWS account of your choice, but now it orchestrates the deployment in the background without requiring manual execution using your AWS Management Console. First, you on-board your AWS Account to DAY2™ with read/write credentials. DAY2™ automatically creates a highly restricted role IAM role through which it manages your entire AWS footprint. All you have to do next is pick the blueprint you want from the DAY2™ Blueprints library, provide the inputs and run it. DAY2™ deploys the AWS resources and automatically discovers the resources. The resources are now available in your DAY2™ dashboard to manage.

DAY2™ secures your account credentials by accessing your account through a system generated restricted IAM role. When you onboard your AWS Account, DAY2™ creates a restricted role, only with permissions required to perform DAY2™ operations. This restricted role is created using secure AWS Well-Architected standards for cross-account access. This restricted role is not accessible by anyone including MontyCloud employees.
