Cloud Foundations

What does this solution do?

Amazon Web Services‘s Cloud Foundations whitepaper defines thirty capabilities required for a company's cloud environment. It covers six categories such as governance, risk management and compliance, operations, security, business continuity, finance, and infrastructure. It is a comprehensive improvement over the cloud adoption strategy of a company after the Landing Zone. The Cloud Foundations Quick Start Pack is a deployment tool for the infrastructures of the cloud environment built exactly as defined in the whitepaper. It aims to quickly deploy a cloud-ready environment including a basic landing zone, security baselines, and DevOps functions within two weeks, using cloud-native technologies and automation services. It will effectively assist you to deploy, operate and govern workloads on the cloud efficiently, and make them available for business production fast. You can continue building based on it and constantly enhance the capabilities of your cloud environment.

You can focus your limited IT resources on high-value opportunities such as large-scale migrations, building the next-generation serverless applications and reinventing business processes on the cloud.

Enhanced security

Deploying with a centrally managed set of code improves the solution’s quality and security. The Cloud Foundations Quick Start Pack has many baseline configurations for compliance and security built into it. You can also propose new security and compliance requirements and quickly integrate them into existing code and configurations, continuously improving the security of your cloud environment.

Simplified work

The Cloud Foundations Quick Start Pack simplifies the building process for an organization with multiple Amazon Web Services accounts. With infrastructure-as-code, the Quick Start Pack is developed and tested in advance for infrastructure resources and their configurations on the cloud, thereby reducing a lot of common errors during implementation and greatly saving deployment time.
