Seting up AWS for test/acc/prod environments

Published on , in ,

The best practice for setting up AWS for different environments is a multi-account setup. This article dives deep into the topic and uncovers the possibilities.

The setup in the article is comprehensive, perhaps an overkill for small dev teams. Here's a possible simpler solution:

Billing could be consolidated using AWS Organizations. If more granular security is needed, different IAM Roles could be used.

(There's also another solution: each env and each dev having their own AWS accounts. Pros: each dev can play in AWS independently; cons: more involved initial setup)

Thanks to Bram and Daan for the discussion.
