Cloud Posse provides a comprehensive reference architecture for AWS that encompasses everything from foundational infrastructure and security to the platform and what sits on top of it. We provide a comprehensive release engineering strategy for continuous integration and delivery, as well as SRE practices you need to be successful. Pick and choose what you need. It's all available today and ready to go.
There are 4 critical layers to well-built infrastructure. Each layer builds on top of the other and has its own SDLC, tools, and strategies. The stability of your platform depends largely on the strength of the foundation. We work with you to tackle each one of these layers, from top to bottom. That's our reference architecture.
Our reference architecture consists of 2 parts: a formal project plan, and the code library of reusable modules and components.
We maintain a continuously up-to-date advanced project plan in Jira that we leverage in every engagement. It consists of 4 major phases, each broken down into smaller milestones (epics). We've identified hundreds of design decisions and implementation tasks that we execute together with your team.
Here's what the breakdown looks like:
- Phase 1: Foundational Infrastructure & Platform
- Accounts, OUs, VPCs, Subnets, DNS, IAM, etc
- Phase 2: Foundational Release Engineering
- CI/CD, Preview Environments, automated deployments/rollbacks
- Phase 3: Foundational Security & Compliance
- BeyondCorp/Zero Trust, Teleport, WAF, SecurityHub, GuardDuty, etc.
- Phase 4: Foundational SRE
- Monitoring foundation, log aggregation, escalations
Infrastructure as Code Library
We publish everything on our GitHub, free of charge and licensed under the permissive APACHE2 software license. This is how we can move so fast, because we've done it before (mistakes and all!) to save you time on implementation. Check out our infrastructure catalog, and you'll probably find what you need. You'll find even more on our GitHub.
Join us every Wednesday at 11:30am PST (GMT-8) to talk shop. We discuss all things related to DevOps, Terraform, Kubernetes, CI/CD Release Engineering.
Basically, they are like a “Lunch & Learn” session where we get together for about an hour to talk shop.
These are totally free and just an opportunity to ask us any questions and learn about cool things we come across.
We run a friendly community with over 5,000+ DevOps experts. These are not just any experts. These are our biggest fans and current customers that use our open source. It's free for everyone to join.
Open Source is our specialty and we have practical, hands-on experience deploying some of the most popular software. Check out our GitHub that showcases some of our current library of services we regularly deploy to Kubernetes. We have even more that we reserve for our customers.
Our customers frequently ask us to add support for many third-party services. Today, we support dozens of integrations with many popular SaaS services. These are entirely optional.
We have comprehensive FAQ that answers many questions you may have.
