Abstract

Businesses that are starting to adopt AWS, expanding their footprint on AWS, or planning to enhance an established AWS environment, can benefit from considering the latest guidance for organizing their AWS environments.

Using multiple AWS accounts to help isolate and manage your business applications and data can help you optimize across most of the AWS Well-Architected Framework pillars including operational excellence, security, reliability, and cost optimization. This paper provides best practices for organizing your overall AWS environment. The extent to which you use these best practices depends on your stage of the cloud adoption journey and your specific business needs.
