Capgemini AWS Control Tower Solution for Amazon EKS Deployments

Capgemini helps customers globally in their cloud transformation journey to Rehost, Re-platform, and Refactor workloads in a multi-account landing Zone environment orchestrated through AWS Control Tower service.

Our solution uses automation to rapidly help clients provision Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services (EKS) with Elastic Compute Services (EC2) based worker nodes into a Control Tower environment. This automation accelerates clients’ application modernization using the Built on Control Tower  (BocT) technical framework (CFCT)  while ensuring compliance with AWS best practices defined by AWS Well Architected Management & Governance Lens (AWS M&G Lens).
