Alike Leverages AWS Control Tower to lower operational burden



About Alike

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.


The Challenge

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 Solution

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.


Benefits

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.
