Landingzone Setup in Azure

Thinkport GmbH

Implementation of a scalable cloud environment using the Microsoft Azure Cloud Adoption Framework

Landing Zone

Our team of Azure Architects and cloud consultants are highly skilled and experienced in designing and deploying Azure landing zones. We understand the unique requirements of different organizations and we work closely with you to design an Azure landing zone that meets your specific business needs and maximize the benefits of the cloud. 

We take care of all the details, from planning and design to deployment and configuration. This means that you can focus on your core business, while we handle the technical aspects of setting up your Azure landing zone. 

Once the Azure landing zone is deployed, you will have an environment that is fully optimized for running enterprise applications. Whether you are migrating existing on-premises applications to the cloud or building new cloud applications, your Azure environment will be fully equipped to meet your needs. 

We will make sure that your Azure environment is set up in a secure and compliant manner, ensuring that your sensitive data is protected at all times.


Recording of regulatory requirements

Evaluate your current compliance status against the relevant regulations and identify any gaps or areas of non-compliance. We implement the necessary controls and policies by using Azure Policy, RBAC and other Azure services to ensure compliance with the recorded regulatory requirements.

Planning of management group and subscription hierarchies and authorizations

Align the management groups and subscriptions with the structure and governance requirements of your organization and considering how resources will be shared across different units of your organization and how access to those resources will be delegated to different teams and individuals. Apply the policies and controls at the right level could ensure that you have the right level of governance and compliance in place

Recording of future network connections

It helps to ensure that network connections are properly planned and implemented in a consistent and secure manner. By recording planned network connections in advance, teams can ensure that the correct security measures are in place and that resources are connected in a way that meets the needs of the organization.

Conceptual design of the landing zones

The conceptual design of the landing zones defines the overall structure and purpose of the landing zone and outlines the key components, such as subscriptions, resource groups, network architecture, security policies, and governance processes, that are necessary to meet the organization's requirements. It sets the foundation for the subsequent implementation and operation of the environment and provides a clear understanding of the goals and objectives for the landing zone. 

Azure Landing Zone Implementation

Creation of management groups and subscriptions

MGs allow you to enforce consistent policies and compliance requirements across multiple Azure subscriptions, making it easier to manage and secure your resources. You can group subscriptions into a hierarchical structure to manage and monitor resources at scale. You can not only delegate administration of Azure subscriptions and resources to different teams or departments, while maintaining central control and visibility but also apply Azure policies and Role-Based-Access-Control (RBAC) at a higher level of the resource hierarchy, making it easier to secure your resource

Setting up network connectivity with your own data center experts

You can choose the suitable connectivity option either with ExpressRoute, VPN or Azure VNet Peering. By Connecting Azure with On-Prem, you can leverage the resources and services of both environment to meet different business needs.

Creation of blueprints for landing zone creation via self-checkout

A blueprint is a collection of Azure policies, Azure RBAC assignments and Azure resource templates used to implement a set of standard infrastructure and governance controls across multiple subscription in Azure. It is a starting point for organizations looking to establish a secure, scalable, and repeatable environment for their cloud workloads. The blueprint is designed to be customizable and can be modified to meet the specific needs of an organization. It helps to accelerate the deployment of a secure and compliant Azure environment and ensures consistency and standardization across multiple subscriptions. Blueprints can be saved and reused to deploy identical or similar environments in the future, which can help improve the repeatability and scalability of cloud deployments
