AWS re:Invent 2016: Enabling Enterprise Migrations: Creating an AWS Landing Zone (ARC314)

With customers migrating workloads to AWS, we are starting to see a need for the creation of a prescribed landing zone, which uses native AWS capabilities and meets or exceeds customers’ security and compliance objectives. In this session, we will describe an AWS landing zone and will cover solutions for account structure, user configuration, provisioning, networking and operation automation. This solution is based on AWS native capabilities such as AWS Service Catalog, AWS Identity and Access Management, AWS Config Rules, AWS CloudTrail and Amazon Lambda. We will provide an overview of AWS Service Catalog and how it be used to provide self-service infrastructure to applications users, including various options for automation. After this session you will be able to configure an AWS landing zone for successful large scale application migrations. Additionally, Philips will explain their cloud journey and how they have applied their guiding principles when building their landing zone.
