AWS Managed Services modes - AMS Advanced Onboarding Guide

AWS Managed Services modes

Use this to help you select the appropriate AWS Managed Services (AMS) mode for hosting your applications, based on your desired combination of flexibility and prescriptive governance to achieve your business outcomes.

The intended audience for this information is:

  • Customer teams responsible for the strategy and governance of their landing zone. This information will help the team lay out the foundation of an AMS-managed landing zone, with the AMS modes they’d like to offer to their internal and external customers.

  • Business and application owners tasked with migrating their application to AMS. This information will help with planning application migration, with the appropriate AMS mode to migrate/host their application. Note, the same application can be hosted in more than one AMS mode during different phases of its Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) lifecycle.

  • AMS partners tasked with guiding customers on the different options to build and migrate to AMS.

This information assumes that you have already made the decision to leverage AMS to accelerate your journey to the cloud. Refer to this paper at two points in your cloud migration journey: First, during the foundation phase of setting up the AMS-managed platform. Second, when you are transitioning from the foundation to the migration phase of your cloud adoption journey, just after onboarding to AMS is complete and you're focusing on application governance and operations.
