Celebrating five years of marbot

Michael Wittig – 25 Oct 2021

Five years ago, we released marbot - ChatOps for AWS . Back in the day, marbot connected Amazon CloudWatch and Slack to spread alerts among your team members. Today, marbot configures AWS monitoring rules, receives alerts from any AWS service, and provides context to solve incidents quickly in Slack and Microsoft Teams. A big thank you to all our customers who trust marbot. Some of them have been using marbot since day one. More than 1,000 teams close 7,500+ alerts every week. Thousands of AWS accounts are monitored by marbot.

Celebrating five years of marbot

In this post, I summarize the history of marbot and provide an outlook of what is coming.








  • Over 100 AWS services are enriched with Quick Links.
  • marbot has been running for more than five years


The future of marbot has always been steered by customer demand and data.

Every one or two years, we reach out to all our customers and ask for feedback. What are areas that need improvement? Are new topics popping up that we should cover? Within the following days, we will start a new survey to gather up-to-date customer feedback. We will reach out to you in Slack and Microsoft Teams.

To celebrate 5 years of marbot, we created a brand new marbot t-shirt .


Take your AWS monitoring to a new level! Add marbot to Slack or Microsoft Teams and start your 14-day free trial. No credit card required.

Thanks for your support,
Andreas & Michael

I’ve been building on AWS since 2012 together with my brother Andreas. We are sharing our insights into all things AWS on cloudonaut and have written the book AWS in Action. Besides that, we’re currently working on bucketAV and marbot.
