Hestio's vision for worX is to take the principal of "codify our value" and make that available to customers in a way that brings value at each stage of the Cloud adoption journey to address two of the most significant challenges facing enterprise AWS customers;
Organizational Complexity: Large enterprises are often complex organizations with multiple business units, geographically distributed teams, and complex governance structures.
Security and Compliance: Large enterprises often have more complex security and compliance requirements than startups, and maintaining security and compliance when adopting or scaling on cloud can be a significant challenge.
worX aims to help solve these challenges by providing technology that enables, accelerates and governs the cloud adoption journey.
Enable access to modern AWS tools using existing enterprise access controls
Provision scalable, robust and flexible workloads on AWS more consistently and with better defaults baked in.
Make managing the workloads you have on AWS more cost effective and more automated
Innovation on AWS is often made accessible at the CLI first. Unlock the potential of your engineering teams by giving them secure access to the same modern tools that innovators and startups use. We understand that the devices enterprises provide their engineers are often heavy restricted and not a natural fit for the toolset and innovations they seek to use to bring value.
The best example of this challenge is to look at how enterprises traditionally grants their employees access to AWS
Our tools in the teamworX pillar are aimed and enabling engineering teams to honor those access and authentication requirements to allow modern AWS tools to be used.
Increase the consistency, security and scale your team can deliver using Hestio's Infrastructure-as-Code library
Our Terraform infrastructure library contains reference architectures (workloads) suitable for provisioning and managing the collections of resources to host many widely deployed enterprise applications and services
Our Terraform infrastructure library codifies enterprise ready components (modules) suitable for large scale deployment. We have patterns for everything from single VMs all the way up to 50Gbit global transit networks on AWS
Codified automation that can be added to your AWS accounts that will help you reduce your spend and better align when that spend occurs to your hours of business.
Codified automation that can be added to your existing CICD pipelines for common uses cases to surface potential costs, perform security analysis and report on detected drift in your AWS accounts.
The same automation can detect and report on orphan or unused resources and assist with minimizing potential attack surface.
Bringing it all together
By now, you will hopefully have an understanding of the value that Hestio's worX can bring to your business with practical examples of how we codify and deliver that value to real customers already.
"We've been using AWSH and BLOX for several years now and it just makes it easier for the whole team to work together. Even the bots can use the exact same tools the engineers have!"
"I like that the modules and workloads represent the things our team have to manage; applications, services and networks. We get the benefits from using Terraform without having to be software developers or infrastructure engineers"
"The cost management automation alone is saving us hundreds of thousands in AWS costs every year."
If you'd like to find out more, we've got documentation and tutorials to get you started. If you're ready to make a difference to how you operate your business on AWS then get in touch. I'm sure we can worX something out.
Some of the images above show the integration of other awesome Open Source we have helped integrate with customer DevOps pipelines. Check them out!
- Infracost is an open-source command-line tool that provides cost estimates for infrastructure-as-code projects on various cloud platforms, helping to identify cost-saving opportunities and improve cost management.
- Checkov is an open-source static analysis tool that scans infrastructure-as-code projects to identify and prevent misconfigurations and security vulnerabilities in cloud environments.
At Hestio, we have taken our experience with designing and building on cloud to codify these patterns and made them available as a low-code pattern library for AWS. Why spend time and effort on reinventing the wheel when it's already a solved problem? Would you start developing office productivity software in a world where Microsoft Office already exists?
