A recent press release reports, “Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS)… announced three new services that provide automation and prescriptive guidance to help customers build more quickly on AWS. AWS Control Tower gives customers an automated “landing zone” that makes it easy to set up their multi-account environment and continuously govern their AWS workloads with rules for security, operations, and compliance. AWS Security Hub is a central place to manage security and compliance across an AWS environment so that customers can quickly see their AWS security and compliance state in one comprehensive view. AWS Lake Formation makes it much easier for customers to build a secure data lake by simplifying and automating many of the complex manual steps usually required, including collecting, cleaning, and cataloging data.”
The release goes on, “As the cloud has increasingly become the default choice for organizations of all sizes, across every industry, it has attracted two distinct types of builders. The first group are the tinkerers who want to use the full range of AWS services, pick out various building blocks, and hammer them together to create a specific architecture. The second type of builders are drawn to AWS for many of the same reasons – the breadth and depth of functionality in AWS – but they are willing to trade some of the service granularity to start at a higher abstraction layer where much of the construction has already been done for them and they can get started faster. AWS has always catered to customers who want to build from the ground up, while also adding services over time like AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon Lightsail, and Amazon SageMaker that are designed to serve the needs of this second type of builder. AWS Control Tower, AWS Security Hub, and AWS Lake Formation extend this approach to a wider array of workloads and scenarios, giving customers abstracted services to help with provisioning and governance, monitoring security and compliance, and building and managing data lakes.”
