AWS Landingzone Framework for Begasoft

One of our esteemed clients and long-time partner company Begasoft AG has been faced with challenge of moving part of their on-prem systems into AWS cloud.

Having had virtually no prior AWS hands-on experience on most services which AWS has to offer, we have agreed to make this first step together and implement together with Begasoft’s engineers Amanox’s own solution for generating AWS cloud environments based on best practices with the name of «Bob the Builder 2.0». This approach was necessary since many companies nowadays decide to proceed with their first step into AWS world on their own. Which initially, it does not seem like a bad idea at all, however over time this kind of approach proves not to be rewarding to any of the future operations, nor to the actual further developments. This path can potentially lead to critical security breaches, loss of tracking of «who did what and when and how», complicated bills at the end of the month, huge blast radius, non-efficient application deployments and many other.

On the other hand, «Bob the Builder 2.0» provides completely serverless framework for vending multiple AWS cloud environments on the fly, meanwhile generating no unnecessary cost at all. Also, by being conceptually based on AWS’s Landing Zone service «Bob the Builder 2.0» would offer entire baseline infrastructure to all AWS environments following AWS Best Practices Guidelines. These would mainly be focused on aspects such as Security and Federation, Compliancy, Governance and Networking.

In the single day of workshop Begasoft AG and Amanox Solutions AG organized, we managed to achieve a lot including:

  • Enabling client’s smooth migration into the AWS Cloud world by Live-Demoing «Bob the Builder 2.0» implementation and adapting/customizing several features per the customer’s requirements
  • Introducing client to the world of DevOps Philosophy and Culture within an Engineering Team
  • Introducing client to the extended use of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) languages such as «Terraform» and «AWS CloudFormation» and furthermore consulting client on the many benefits that IaC provides when leveraged within multiple cloud environments
  • Consulting client on the process of “GitOps” Continuous Deployments for the safe and maximized release efficiency
  • Consulting client on the critical role of Infrastructure Layer Decoupling approach which minimizes future blast radius during deployments
  • Introducing client to the AWS most essential and widely used services and their importance
