Hi, I’m Jonathan LaCour, CTO at Mission, and today we are going to talk about Mission Cloud Foundation.

What is the Market Problem?

AWS’ ecosystem of products and services are constantly growing, making it difficult for businesses navigating the cloud computing services on their own to evaluate, select, launch, and maintain the right services for their needs. Without a deliberate approach to architecting and maintaining their cloud environment, organizations frequently find themselves spending more money than anticipated due to cloud sprawl, lacking governance, or neglecting to add standard security controls to their environment.

This is why Mission developed Cloud Foundation — a new managed service that combines certified experts, robust tooling, and proven methods to give you greater visibility and governance over your AWS environment. 

What Does Mission Deliver?

When you sign up for Mission’s Cloud Foundation, you are assigned a cloud analyst who is focused on optimizing your usage and spend in AWS. Meeting at a regular cadence, our AWS-certified cloud analysts will focus on cloud security best practices, resource inventory management, cost optimization and containment, quantifying and evaluating TCO and ROI calculations, and more.
