What is a Cloud Landing Zone?


Cloud Landing Zones serve as a bridge, facilitating scalable and cost-effective application of five core governance functions. They ensure a consistent, as-code, configuration of cloud environments for application teams, reducing the complexities of managing diverse cloud workloads.

Without a Landing Zone in place, scaling cloud adoption can quickly spiral out of control, especially beyond a few application teams. While the advantages of a Landing Zone primarily come into play when scaling cloud adoption, it’s best to commence building a Landing Zone from day one of your cloud journey.

In many organizations setting out on their cloud journey, expertise required to build and run cloud applications is rare and unevenly spread. Attracting new talent or building these skills via training takes time and effort. Given these constraints, organizations must adopt a cloud operating model that sets them up for successful migration to the cloud.


  • Discover the role of Landing Zones in enabling application teams to adopt the cloud. Explore their role in governance functions such as tenant management, IAM, security and compliance, cost control, and the service ecosystem.
  • Dive into the architecture of Landing Zones, and see how application teams can deploy their workloads on the cloud in a tailored manner.
  • Learn about best practices for adopting a cloud operating model with our Landing Zone Guide. Gain tactical advice for delivering the first tailored Landing Zones, including how to prioritize cloud use cases, evaluate workload types, and assess connectivity requirements.
  • Delve into an in-depth exploration of different use-case tailored Landing Zones, such as cloud-native, lift and shift, container platform, and data science. This includes a focus on building blocks, capabilities, and best practices for each type.
