Why RMS?

Resource Overview

Resource Overview

RMS provides a single platform where you can manage all your cloud resources in one place. On the RMS console, you can search for and view resources regardless of what region they are deployed in, export information about these resources, and view resource information such as basic details, configuration details, and what enterprise projects they have been assigned to.


Advantages

Cross-Region Access

You can query your resources in different regions and take advantage of convenient search capabilities.

Exporting Resource Snapshots

For each resource, you can view and export a snapshot of configuration details, and query the snapshots for configuration changes.

Tracking Resource Changes

Tracking Resource Changes

After a resource recorder is configured, RMS records any resource changes every six hours and takes new resource snapshots every 24 hours.

You can easily query the resource records and trace resource changes.


Advantages

- You can search the stored JSON files recorded changes to make troubleshooting easier.

- Data can be imported to a big data analysis platform for historical analysis.

Resource Change Notifications

Resource Change Notifications

An RMS resource recorder, once enabled, continuously tracks resource changes (such as creations, deletions, and modifications), dumps resource change files to OBS buckets, and notifies third-party subscription endpoints of resource changes using Simple Message Notification (SMN). If an enterprise migrates their on-premises or third-party cloud resources to their CloudCMDB system, RMS will notify the enterprise of this change.


Advantages

- You can use APIs to centrally query all cloud resources managed by RMS.

- When a resource is created, modified, or deleted, or if a resource relationship changes, RMS sends an HTTP message to a third-party system using SMN, ensuring you learn of resource changes in a timely manner.

Continuous Compliance Audit

Continuous Compliance Audit

Running assignments lets you continuously evaluate the compliance of your resource configurations.


Advantages

Built-in Policies

With built-in compliance policies, you can add assignments by specifying the scope of resources to be audited. As specified in the assignments, any configuration changes for those resources will trigger a compliance evaluation.

Advanced Queries

With Advanced Queries, you can customize query rules, run them to search for resources, and evaluate the resource configuration compliance.
