Why implement an AWS cloud landing zone?

Optimize your cloud costs

The landing zone offers monitoring and control of cloud resource usage to optimize costs without compromising performance or security. Track resource utilization, identify cost-saving opportunities, and ensure efficient allocation of cloud resources through automation.

To adhere to governance regulations

Security and compliance is simplified with a landing zone because the framework establishes policies, procedures and controls to ensure compliance with industry regulations and internal governance frameworks. It enables organizations to enforce standardized practices, maintain accountability, and ensure consistency across cloud deployments.

Maximize your security

We can think of a landing zone as a cloud facilitation tool. It helps everyone in your team get what they need out of your cloud in a secure way, with tight access management and segregated accounts. It provides the cloud visibility you need to stay in control.

To simplify your everyday cloud management

Achieve centralized management with continuous monitoring. Your different cloud environments are segregated and there is standardization for the deployments of your cloud workloads. Your daily operations tasks are accelerated with improved productivity.

AWS cloud landing zone FAQs

  • Can I create my own landing zone manually?

    Yes you can. However, it takes a huge amount of resource and expertise to ensure your AWS multi-account environment is correctly configured to remove all vulnerabilities. With StackZone, we achieve this in hours and ultimately save you money by making your cloud budget stretch further. If you want to get it right straight away, create a seamless adoption of StackZone’s cloud landing zone.
  • Do I need a multi-account landing zone?

    Implementing a landing zone is essential to effectively manage your AWS cloud environment in line with the AWS Well-Architected Framework. A landing zone helps you drive your governance capabilities by segregating your accounts based on their function. This enables you to assign user permissions for each area based on the principle of least privilege. This increases your resilience in the case of a cyber attack and mitigates your risk. Not harnessing the benefits of the AWS multi account architecture forces you to give each person who needs cloud access the credentials to your entire AWS environment, which obviously increases your security risks.
  • Will I experience downtime?

    We pride ourselves on our efficiency; making your public cloud secure, cost-optimized, and compliant in hours without disruptions to your service. We trial all auto remediations to ensure our setup won’t impact your business activities.
