Examples of CloudFormation Services We Provide


CloudFormation Account Factory

Automation is created to ensure a new AWS Account is added to AWS Organization automatically so that a single account can be used as a best practice guideline for adding more accounts.

•  Security logging is centralized to the audit account so that analytics are available and forensics are not compromised in the event of a breach.

•  The account’s security is hardened to CIS Standards and guardrails in place via native AWS “Inspectors and Injectors” so that they have validated best-practice security reducing the risk of a breach via automation checking password levels and removing default VPCs from all regions in AWS.

 

CloudFormation VPC Factory

Ease maintenance and support developer self-provisioning with confidence.

•  Create a VPC Factory that automatically deploys and removes VPCs based on company standards so that Development Teams can self-provision an environment that complies with company guidelines.

•  Provide cross-account functionality so that environments & billing can be segregated across accounts.

CloudFormation AMI Factory

Speed deployment of application updates and reduce the risk of downtime with an automated process.

•  Ensures latest software patches, versions, agents are applied to increase security posture.

•  Provides consistency, allowing Security & Development Teams to work autonomously with increased speed.

•  Allows automated enforcement and updates of latest updates to the Servers for security maintainability & compliance. 

 

CloudFormation Infrastructure Factory

Deploy infrastructure using code and automate promotion through environments.

•  Cross-account functionality is provided so that environments & billing can be segregated across accounts.

•  Provides changelogs for all infrastructure changes to support traceability and strengthen compliance.

•  Installs an Application Load Balancer, EC2 Instance & AutoScaling Group so that a model is provided to show how AWS Resources are enabled in the Infrastructure Factory.

 

 

CloudFormation Application Factory

Gain the ability to deploy application patterns using code and automating promotion (CI/CD) through environments.

•  Provides cross-account functionality so that environments & billing can be segregated across accounts.

•  Provides change logs for all application pattern changes to support traceability and strengthen compliance.

•  Installs NGINX application pattern so that a model is available for additional application patterns to be modeled.

 

Create a Transit CloudFormation network with AWS Transit Gateway or Cisco CSR

A transit router/service is deployed through automation so that a transit network can be set up quickly and in a consistent manner.

•  New VPCs created through the factory are registered into the transit network so that new VPCs are automatically added to transit network in a consistent manner.

•  Connectivity is established and continuously checked through alarms between on-premise to AWS and between AWS VPCs so that we can be alerted of connectivity issues in the environment between VPCs, on-premise, and internet.
