Resources represent objects that are managed by Guardrails. Typically, these are mapped to resources in the cloud service, such as an AWS S3 bucket, a GCP compute instance, or an Azure SQL database. Information about Guardrails resources is stored in the CMDB. Policies can be set to manage the configuration of resources (or sets of resources).
