AWS CDK, or the AWS Cloud Development Kit, is an open-source software development framework for defining cloud infrastructure as code (IaC) that AWS introduced in July 2019. It uses AWS CloudFormation (CloudFormation) as a foundation and enables nClouds’ engineers to provision IaC using modern programming languages. Our clients benefit from easier cloud onboarding, a faster development process, customizable and shareable components, and no context switching between your cloud app and IDE.
AWS CDK provides high-level components called constructs that preconfigure cloud resources with proven defaults to make it easier to build cloud applications. However, if you don't implement it correctly, you'll face challenges keeping the infrastructure up-to-date and applying changes, particularly when managing multiple applications, Regions, and environments. That's why our clients rely on nClouds to apply our best practices to implementing AWS CDK in their infrastructure.
At nClouds, our team of AWS-certified experts has worked on hundreds of projects for companies like yours. nClouds’ engineers have extensive experience with CloudFormation and IaC, and we’ve found that AWS CDK is an invaluable tool as we build solutions for our clients.
When our developer-centric DevOps teams use AWS CDK, they apply best practices such as:
And, nClouds uses our proprietary nCodeLibrary, an AWS CDK-compatible IaC repository that enables our clients to spin up cloud environments quickly with complete confidence. By building complete environments with nCodeLibrary modules, the overall infrastructure inherits AWS Well-Architected best practices guidelines.
Examples of how nClouds creates innovative solutions for our clients by using AWS CDK include accelerating data lake development with a data lake as code approach and helping SaaS businesses build robust infrastructure solutions with automated testing and deployment.
