I’m starting to get a little over whelmed. Ever since AWS created an API in the AWS Orgs service to allow for the programmatic creation of AWS accounts things have gotten really interesting when building a reference architecture for AWS.
Now HashiCorp have jump on the wagon with a Teraform Landing Zone.
Pretty cool but which one do you use?
By my reckoning there are now 6 major ways you can handle automated account creation:
- AWS Account Factory
- AWS Landing Zone
- AWS Control Tower
- AWS Deployment Framework (though technically this doesn’t create the account it hydrates it)
- The original bash script they released on announcement of the api for orgs
- HashiCorp AWS LTZ
Never mind the new Hub and Spoke models that are now popping up all over the place.
My brain hurts.
