Secure cloud onboarding

A meshcloud customer now covers 85% of the security controls in cloud onboarding with meshStack. IT security is an important topic – conflicts during cloud migration are often programmed. This puts the achievement of goals at risk and creates frustration. meshStack as the technical platform for cloud transformation and the support of meshcloud experts have resolved these conflicts: Above all, the establishment of landing zones available to the development teams has meant that the cloud migration is back on track.

Transparent cloud billing

A meshcloud customer was faced with the challenge of adapting its own IT cost management to the company’s cloud strategy. Traditional methods of budgeting in the relatively static data center structure were no match for the dynamic pay-per-use model of the cloud.

Being able to allocate and account for 100% of the costs of the private cloud was the goal. The pay-per-use model of hyperscalers works the same way with meshStack in the private cloud. The customer was able to implement showback and chargeback internally, thus increasing transparency, creating cost awareness and reducing costs.

From Lift & Shift to Cloud-Native

One of Germany’s largest banks started with its traditional IT organization and ambitious goals when it came to cloud transformation. Many projects should disappear from data centers in a relatively short time and be run on cloud platforms.

Achieving this was not possible with refactoring all applications. However, it was important to the customer to keep the path to cloud-native architectures technologically open. Security in the cloud should be standardized and the possibilities of automation in the cloud should be fully exploited.

With meshStack, the transformation to an agile product organization has been successful: With an end-to-end automated self-service process, application teams get to the development environments they need in the cloud in minutes. The customer covers both lift & shift and cloud-native use cases with meshStack.

Integration second cloud platform

A major energy provider in Germany faced the challenge of introducing Azure as an additional cloud platform alongside AWS. The integration of AWS had previously taken more time than expected and posed many challenges. The company’s development teams had also not embraced the previous cloud offering as originally anticipated.

So the goal was to integrate Azure into the enterprise, enable cloud-native use cases for Azure and AWS, and increase usage of the cloud by application teams.

With a focus on modular, cloud-native landing zones, the cloud is now attractive to developers and can be used easily and securely.

The integration of AWS and Azure into the meshStack cloud foundation platform have dramatically reduced the time to deploy Azure in the enterprise. meshStack covers governance for both platforms – it does not need to be rebuilt separately. This reduces complexity and operational effort for our customer.

Automation and integration

The enterprise architects of a major German energy company faced the challenge of implementing the company’s cloud strategy with few resources in the area of platform engineers. Providing cloud accounts via telephone or email processes took a very long time and tied up capacity. The manual configuration of accounts has resulted in a heterogeneous security level.

The goal was self-service for cloud-native use cases, deployment of multiple cloud platforms, and as much freedom as possible for development teams to foster innovation.

With meshStack, a multi-cloud setup was achieved within a few months. Workshops and support from meshcloud’s experts helped build the necessary expertise.

All routine processes could be completely automated with meshStack. This has freed up important capacities at Platform Engineers again.

With meshStack, the company was able to win an external award for its cloud organization and make the cloud attractive internally.

Strategically smart transformation

No vendor lock and more than just lift & shift

There are strategic mistakes in the cloud journey that can have serious consequences. Thus, a wrong approach can lead to dependency on one cloud provider. To ensure future flexibility, this must be prevented at all costs. Proper cloud implementation is also crucial: instead of a 1:1 migration based on the lift & shift principle, applications and processes must be adapted. This is the only way to really exploit the advantages of the cloud.

Cloud as a delivery model

Transforming IT from a cost center to a profit center

The cloud opens up new scope and ensures that your company remains agile. The important thing here is the transformation of IT to a “run your IT like a business” approach: In the context of the cloud journey, this is changing from a cost factor to a profit factor. Automated chargeback and allocation of incurred costs using meshStack make this possible.

Full cost control

Establish cost transparency & prevent shadow IT

Transparent billing is necessary so that the cloud transformation does not become a cost trap. meshStack enables automated management for all clouds: all costs from all platforms and services are allocated to the originating stakeholder. Stakeholders get automated billing processes and self-service that is fast enough to eliminate the need for any shadow IT.

terraform modules service catalog
Building Blocks in Service Catalogs

Conveniently provision Platform Services from your central Service Catalog

Our intuitive user experience, lets you provision platform services in self-service as required, by both beginners and cloud experts.

Why is a service catalog for platform services useful for your organization?

Many cloud applications rely on standard components, such as network services, databases or monitoring tools. These components are often provided as platform services by cloud providers.

However, it is time-consuming to set up and reconfigure such platform services again and again. The resulting inconsistencies also harbor security risks. This is why many IT departments decide to define a standard, so-called “golden paths”, and provide this standard configuration centrally in a service catalog.

meshStack is a tool for platform teams to quickly set up such platform services independently for their own cloud and application landscape.

Who develops or defines the platform services for a central service catalog?

Companies usually establish a platform or cloud foundation team that is responsible for providing cloud infrastructure and platform services.

Which platform services are typically integrated in a service catalog?

The first service is often a networking service, as this is required by most applications. This is followed, for example, by DevOps tools such as Azure DevOps, GitHub or GitLab.

Use Cases

Platform Teams use Building Blocks to ...

Problem: Customizing landing zones for different use cases

Central cloud teams need to support a wide variety of cloud applications. A one-size-fits-all landing zone does not meet these requirements.

Solution: Modular landing zones

Landing zones are built up in modules. These modules can be flexibly combined to support the different use cases (and skill levels) of the applications. At the same time, compliance-tested standards are enforced.

Result: Use-case-specific landing zones based on standardized building blocks

Application teams are provided with a suitable landing zone for their use case quickly without the need for customization. Standardization of modules leads to less complexity and thus facilitates the development and operations of the landing zones. Security requirements are enforced consistently across the entire cloud landscape.

Modular Landing Zone Infografik
Problem: Software delivery is slowed down

Software delivery is slowed down because developers have to fulfill extensive non-functional requirements that take time and focus away from the implementation of value-adding application functionality.

Solution: Golden Paths for frequently used platform services

The platform team provides so-called “Golden Paths” for frequently used platform services in a service catalog for self-service provisioning.

Result: Higher productivity and consistent cloud landscape

The optimized developer experience accelerates application development. The self-service catalog frees platform teams from provisioning platform services so that they can focus on developing new “golden paths”. The use of standardized platform services reduces complexity and improves the level of security in the cloud.

Problem: Lack of expertise in building cloud applications

Many teams do not yet have sufficient skills and expertise to operate applications in the cloud.

Solution: Actively offer services to build up expertise in the service catalog

Consulting offerings such as a cloud driver’s license, architecture review or security support are integrated into the service catalog as platform services.

Result: Continuous invest in expertise for application teams

Application teams have a central overview of the platform team’s entire offering in the service catalog and can take advantage of services as needed to increase their cloud maturity. Platform teams can accelerate cloud adoption by building up expertise.

Automated cloud cost management

meshStack enables you to analyze and sustainably reduce your cloud costs

Central cost transparency across all clouds

  • Overview of cloud costs for all stakeholders
  • Cross-cloud cost allocation to cost centers
  • Metering of private clouds and on-premises services (via Service Marketplace)
  • PDF and CSV export
  • Automated currency conversion
  • Showback and chargeback
  • Definition of quotas and budgets
  • Budget Alerts

Creation and management of payment methods

Payment methods in meshStack model company-specific means of allocation (e.g. budgets, cost centers, internal orders) and can be freely configured accordingly – name, expiration date, budget, and much more. They can be created and assigned to projects by administrators or external systems in customer accounts. In addition, so-called “Substitute Payment Methods” can be stored, which e.g. allow an automatic change of the budget at a certain date (e.g. year change). In meshstack, payment methods can be managed in various ways:

  • Via self-service for project and project teams by team members or administrators
  • Creation via external systems and subsequent assignment to project teams

Chargeback in the multi-cloud

meshStack offers the possibility to define billing rules and prices based on measured consumption data and thus to create monetary settlements. Specifically, the chargeback module enables:

  • Billing at project level
  • Total overview of costs for cloud resources used
  • Monthly cost history
  • Billing for deputies/partners: display of cost overview for managed accounts
  • Cost dashboard in the panel (UI)

Metering for maximum efficiency

Metering enables meshStack to measure cloud resources used in connected cloud platforms and for connected cloud services if and insofar as the connected platforms technically support the collection of consumption data and have been configured for this. Own prices or cost allocations can be added flexibly in the service catalog.

The collected consumption data is consolidated at meshProject level, prepared for the user and displayed in the meshPanel (UI). Likewise, all cost data can be exported via API or as CSV to make them available for further analyses or internal billing systems.

Further advantages of meshStack

Cloud cost transparency

Keep developers financially accountable by providing them with an easily accessible view of their current cloud spend at all times.

Define multi-cloud budgets

Multi-cloud budgets allow developers to leverage their preferred technologies to build applications without adding cost allocation overhead.

Fully automated cost management

Automatically allocate cloud costs to the teams that incur them. Say goodbye to tedious manual spreadsheets.

Datenexport zum Erstellen von Reports

Export all your cost data to create custom reports for effective cloud cost management using tools like PowerBI or Google Looker (formerly Data Studio).

Allocation of internal costs to application teams

Distribute the cost of shared services such as CI/CD, networking, or monitoring and governance functions such as landing zones equitably across application teams.

Custom Fees

meshStack offers the option to store your own fees and/or discount rates, which are automatically transferred by the system to the regular billing of a meshProject and are listed and calculated there.

Challenge

Lack of cost transparency and manual cost allocation

IT decision-makers often lack the means to allocate the costs incurred in the cloud to specific projects or cost centers. Efficient controlling of cloud costs is therefore not possible or only possible with error-prone, manual processes. Due to the long time lag between the generation and billing of costs, it is often too late to take action when costs get out of hand.

Solution

Cross-cloud cost allocation at meshProject level

meshcloud prepares the usage data of the cloud platforms used and creates transparency for controlling and cost management. The costs can be further processed in third-party systems via exports. The showback functionality also creates awareness among developers for cloud costs incurred, in private and public clouds. And this with regularly updated data (e.g. daily).

Security in the cloud

Tagging, landing zones, policies - consistent, by default

Comprehensive cloud governance must include cloud security and cloud compliance requirements at its core. At the same time, it should give freedom and autonomy to the application teams in your company. To help you build such cloud compliance, meshStack offers a wide range of cloud security and cloud compliance capabilities.

Cloud Landing Zones

Security and Compliance by Design

Implement a consistent security foundation to prevent security breaches so your application teams can build on a secure foundation. meshStack’s cloud landing zone capabilities enable enterprises to securely configure cloud tenants (e.g. AWS Accounts, Azure Subscriptions, GCP Projects) according to centrally defined security and compliance requirements before they are even used.

Cloud tagging

Consistent and comprehensive cloud tagging

Multi-cloud tagging is an indispensable tool when it comes to establishing comprehensive cloud governance in your organization. Tags let you capture metadata about your cloud applications and environments in a structured way. This benefits not only cloud compliance and the security settings of your cloud environments, but also other areas such as tenant management or billing.

Compliance using cloud policies

Compliance-conform cloud environments - for every use case

  • Integrate organizational compliance requirements into your cloud governance workflows to achieve greater standardization
  • Automate compliance requirements to accelerate application time-to-market
  • Provide your application teams with an intuitive user interface to efficiently deploy compliant cloud-native applications

The three principles of meshStack

The perfect balance between agility and control

Automation

By automating security and compliance requirements in the cloud, you reduce the burden on your application teams and accelerate time-to-market for applications while maintaining a consistent security foundation.

Prevention

Instead of correcting misconfigurations that have already occurred, provide your application teams with securely configured and properly documented cloud environments to prevent misconfigurations from the start.

Continuity

With our desired-state approach, you can not only create compliant cloud environments, but also achieve persistent policy compliance and avoid configuration deviations down the road.

Further advantages of meshStack

Integration of external approval processes

meshStack offers externally available interfaces to seamlessly integrate systems responsible for approval processes (ServiceNow, ITSM systems) and meshStack.

Enforcement of naming schemes

meshStack provides the ability to enforce standards for project naming and create cloud tenants according to a global naming scheme (depending on platform capabilities)

4-eyes principle

When assigning authorization roles on meshProjects, two independent confirmations by administrators are optionally required. For pending approvals, meshStack sends emails to the people to be approved.

Multi-cloud policies

By defining multi-cloud policies, organizational specifications can be ensured in multi-cloud projects. The defined policies can include and restrict the assignment of users and user groups as well as the use of landing zones.

Stylisher divider in meshcloud blue

Use meshStack to manage the tenant lifecycle end-to-end – fully integrated on one platform.

Cloud Tenant Management rethought

With meshStack you manage the accounts of all cloud platforms in just one place

One multi-cloud project for all your clouds

  • Automated tenant creation (e.g. Azure Subscriptions or Resource Groups, AWS Accounts, Google Projects)
  • Consistent configuration of secure Landing Zones
  • Overview of user and cloud platforms
  • Cross-cloud project metadata (project owners, cost centers etc.)
  • Cross-cloud assignment of cloud access rights
  • Direct access to native cloud tools (APIs, CLIs, consoles, etc.)
  • Easier switching between cloud platforms (reduced lock-in)
  • Cloud inventory for more transparency

The Leading Solution for AWS Accounts, Azure Subscriptions & GCP Projects

Simplify your cloud governance

In meshStack, a cloud tenant refers to an account with a cloud provider. For example, a tenant can be an account with AWS, a subscription with Azure, or a project with GCP. Companies with a large number of cloud tenants with different cloud providers need central tenant management: the structured creation and management of accounts across all clouds.

Multi-cloud project management

Combined management of users and access permissions - from all cloud accounts

meshStack enables true multi-cloud project management: For this purpose, cross-cloud account projects are created – so-called meshProjects. A meshProject is a cross-cloud organizational unit in which all components belonging to a cloud application are bundled organizationally. At the same time, meshProjects always remain isolated from each other (multi-tenancy).

What is included in a meshProject

  • Overview of the cloud platforms, people and their roles involved in a project.
  • Uniform management of users and their access roles
  • Consolidated view of cloud tenants and services belonging to a project
  • Management of project metadata ("tags") via a company-specific tag catalog
  • Management of consumption and billing data
Every hand wants a piece of the pizza.

Quota management

Some cloud platforms have interfaces that allow the configuration of restrictions on a tenant’s resource consumption (quota). These can be stored in meshStack: Either as default quota for newly created meshProjects (via landing zones) or on project level.

Use Case

Cloud tenant creation with meshStack

1. Team Lead Tom or one of his developers create a meshProject on the meshStack platform and assign appropriate access roles within the team.

2. Tom selects the cloud platform(s) his team will need for the project, such as Azure.

3. Tenants are created, given an appropriate landing zone, and then given the desired access roles for the team for the team – fully automated by the system.

4. The meshStack platform continuously replicates the meshProject to the connected cloud platforms in case of changes (e.g. user permissions).

Challenge
Heterogeneous organizational structures and lack of development resources

Cloud providers such as AWS, Azure or GCP follow different concepts for managing accounts, users, access structures and costs. In a multi-cloud strategy, this heterogeneity leads to large administrative overhead: Company-internal organizational structures have to be transferred to the respective concepts and administrative processes have to be adapted to them. The necessary governance structures and specific platform expertise are often lacking, which leads to complexity and uncontrollable shadow IT.

Solution

Central definition of organizational structures for all cloud platforms

meshcloud integrates all relevant cloud platforms out-of-the-box and accompanies the entire cloud project lifecycle: tenant (de)provisioning, tenant configuration, user (de)provisioning, service (de)provisioning. The organization is modeled centrally on the platform and transferred to the connected platforms. New cloud platforms can thus be integrated easily.
