The web tier servers web content to users via with an application load balancer (ELB) distributing traffic across 3 availability zones. 

AWS WAF was also deployed on the application load balancer to protect against common Layer 7 attacks. 

Amazon S3 were also purposed to used to store backups of the EC2 instances and also for storing the security logs for the accounts.

Lessons Learned

With Cloud deployment – It’s easy to quickly deploy with out best practices and  this leads to a large bill while using cloud services.

It’s vitally important to keep track of your cloud spend and always have visibility of what is running in your account.

It’s also recommended, and a best practice, to setup alerts when your cloud spend reaches a set threshold. 

Omnesecodes team was also exploring and experimenting with AWS dedicated hosts to look at the possibilities of BYOL Microsoft licenses to the AWS cloud.
