Add on-call schedules, SMS, and voice alerting to Cloudwatch with iLert

Amazon CloudWatch is a monitoring service for AWS cloud resources and applications running in the AWS Cloud. Amazon CloudWatch can monitor AWS resources, such as EC2 instances, Amazon DynamoDB tables, and Amazon RDS DB instances, as well as application and service generated metrics and log files. With iLert's CloudWatch integration, you can automatically create incidents in iLert from CloudWatch alarms. That way, you will never miss a critical alert and always alert the right person using iLert's on-call schedules, automatic escalation, and multiple alerting channels.
