What does CloudQuery do and how does it operate? CloudQuery is a tool used for monitoring cloud asset inventory. It allows companies to evaluate, assess, and audit their configurations in real-time. The tool utilizes SQL to extract, load, and transform cloud assets into normalized PostgreSQL tables. Integration with existing visualization, alerting, and monitoring systems, such as Grafana, is possible. CloudQuery supports the TimescaleDB PostgreSQL extension, which enables users to view the complete history of their cloud asset inventory. SQL can be used to gain comprehensive visibility into both cloud infrastructure and SaaS applications. The tool also includes features like locating AWS load balancers and implementing the AWS CIS 1.5 Ensure IAM password policy for secure inventory management. Additionally, CloudQuery can be connected to AWS, Okta, Azure, GCP, Yandex, Kubernetes, and other software for efficient asset management.
