AWS CDK Consulting Services

Let’s create innovative solutions using AWS CDK.

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 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.

Why nClouds for AWS CDK Consulting?

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 the following:

  • Enhancing security by
    1. implementing encryption at rest everywhere possible,
    2. architecting restrictive network access, and
    3. enforcing a least privilege policy for AWS Identity Access Management (IAM)
  • Tagging all resources to help manage, identify, organize, search for, and filter resources
  • Reusing code to reduce the number of lines of code and the size of application artifacts
  • Using Compliance-as-Code to automate the implementation, validation, remediation, monitoring, and reporting of our client’s required compliance across its entire ecosystem

At nClouds, we use 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.
