Build out a well-architected multi-account strategy on AWS that is PCI-compliant.

UpEquity needed an uncomplicated way to govern multiple AWS accounts, easily provision/decommission AWS accounts, and maintain Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance.

“nClouds built a solid architectural foundation for the launch of UpEquity. They applied their deep AWS experience and DevOps skills to support our rapid growth and innovation.”


nClouds' Solution Architecture for UpEquity:

UpEquity’s mortgage application was in a proof-of-concept stage when they approached nClouds to build the foundation of their AWS infrastructure to support that application. nClouds recommended a multi-account strategy to enable UpEquity to support innovation and agility, group workloads based on business purpose and ownership, apply distinct security controls by environment, constrain access to sensitive data, and limit the scope of impact from adverse events. nClouds applied best practices of a well-architected multi-account AWS environment by implementing AWS Organizations.
