As larger and more complex workloads are deployed on AWS, multi-account solutions are an increasingly common architectural blueprint. Often referred to as cloud “landing zones,” these blueprints enable simple administrative boundaries. However, using multiple accounts increases the complexity of security tooling, access control and authorization, and cross-account networking. AWS Control Tower simplifies the process of setting up multi-account environments with predefined security baseline templates.
With the shift to containers and serverless solutions, organizations are presented with a unique question: how do you maximize an application’s uptime while maintaining a cost-effective infrastructure at both layers? Keeping availability high by over-provisioning is easy, but it’s also very expensive. As a result, several challenges have arisen on the path to building an optimized, cost-effective, and highly available containerized infrastructure on AWS: pricing, instance sizing, and containers utilization.
