Alike Leverages AWS Control Tower to lower operational burden
Alike Health is a digital healthcare company that untaps the power of medical records by
utilizing proprietary AI, crowdsourcing and big data to make personalized health a reality.
As an early stage start-up that is going to grow and serve many customers, Alike needed a
solution for building “environment in a click”. It means that for every developer and/or healthcare
partner a full environment should be created with a set of infrastructure services and security
rules, and an automatic application deployment. All the environments will be managed using
centralized accounts for logging, monitoring and application CI/CD.
The chosen solution for Alike was to use AWS Control Tower. AWS Control Tower provides the
easiest way to set up and govern a secure, multi-account AWS environment, called a landing
zone. Using AWS Control Tower, the organization can implement company-wide policies and
assure that all the created accounts will be provisioned with these policies.
Using AWS Control Tower, Alike can easily define different OU’s (Organization Units) that each
contain several accounts. An Organization Unit can be “development”, “production” etc. For
each Organizational Unit there is a predefined set of security guardrails that provides a different
security environment in each account type.
1. A centrally managed multi-account environment.
2. Environment creation in a click., including predefined security rules and automations.
3. High security solution that meets Alike’s healthcare partners requirements.
