VPDC Landing Zone


The VPDC Landing Zone is created with the AWS Control Tower service and custom features, accounts, and controls. This facility is designed to enable secure automation in a multi-account environment and provides robust authentication, identity management, centralized logging, and auditing capabilities. The VPDC Landing Zone consists of several standard accounts (Management, LogArchive, and SecurityTooling), Shared Services accounts (Network and Backup Vault) and Workload accounts that find applications in different phases (e.g. Dev, Test and Prod).

This architectural design ensures compliance with the AWS Well-Architected Framework, while integrated services are implemented in accordance with the AWS Security Reference Architecture (AWS SRA).

Network Account 1

Network Account

The Network account serves as the central network hub and uses the AWS Transit Gateway, a cloud router, in a special hub-and-spoke architecture. This design enables secure and redundant connections between all spokes or AWS member accounts. The network zoning is configured to route all traffic to and from an AWS member account through a central AWS firewall, while serving as a central breakout point for Internet traffic, which is also routed through the central AWS firewall.

This approach provides the highest level of protection and controlled traffic across zones and accounts. In addition, this centralized architecture provides a number of benefits, including:


  • Centralized management: The Network account enables centralized management of firewall rules and access to the various AWS member accounts and the Internet. This approach reduces complexity and provides better control over network security.
  • Reduced exposure: Because all Internet traffic is routed through a centralized AWS firewall, the design minimizes exposure to potential threats from the Internet.
  • Centralized traffic flow and logging: The centralized architecture provides better visibility and control of network traffic flow and enables centralized logging and analysis of network activity.
  • High availability and low latency: The Network account is designed for high availability and low latency AWS network connectivity, ensuring reliable and fast connections between accounts.
  • Easy scalability and expandability: The hub-and-spoke architecture enables easy scaling and expansion of the network as new accounts are added or traffic increases.
  • Connectivity standardization: The centralized design enables standardization of connectivity across accounts, improving overall network consistency and reliability.
  • Isolation of network services: By separating network services, configurations, and operations from the application, this design improves overall security and minimizes the risk of potential disruptions.
Backup Vault Accont

Backup Vault Account

The Backup Vault account is a dedicated and centralized backup account in the AWS public cloud that provides organizations with a highly reliable backup solution in the event of a system failure. copebit has invested significantly in the development of this solution to ensure the highest level of data security. Service backups are first created in the respective AWS member accounts and then transferred to the Backup Vault account in another region (cross-region) to safeguard against region failure. For customers with strict “data residency” requirements, backups within the same region are transferred to the Backup Vault account instead (cross-account). The Backup Vault service can be customized to meet the customer’s RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective) requirements. Centralizing the Backup Vault account offers several advantages:


  • Centralized backup management for offsite copies
  • Improved security and availability of backups in the event of a region or account breach
  • Standardized and centralized backup storage
  • Simplified retention periods
  • Controlled backup access and centralized and standardized backup encryption.
Workload Account

Workload Account

The Workload account is a hosting environment for one or more applications within an organization’s infrastructure. A tier architecture is used for zoning, where the logical separation of the application and database tiers is achieved by private subnets. Communication between the different tiers occurs within the workload account and is governed by security groups and access control lists. Incoming and outgoing traffic from the Workload account is routed to the Network account. The VPDC’s Workload accounts can be structured and scaled according to the customer’s requirements, with individual security controls for the different Workload accounts (e.g. Dev, Test and Prod). The Workload account provides the following benefits:


  • Risk mitigation by splitting environments into different accounts.
  • Flexible access and permissions management for each environment (e.g., DevOps engineers have access only to the Dev account)
  • Flexible management of security controls for each environment (e.g., Dev can be generic, Prod can be restricted)
  • Regulated and standardized inbound, outbound and inter-environment traffic
Erweiterungen / Extensions


The Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC) design aims to meet the diverse needs of enterprises. Therefore, the Landing Zone VPDC is configured to be extensible and customizable to meet specific requirements. Possible extensions and options include:


  • Integration with existing directory services, such as AzureAD, to enable seamless user authentication and authorization
  • Connectivity to on-premises or other public cloud environments for hybrid deployments and seamless workload migration
  • Private and centralized connections to public AWS services to enable secure communications and data transfer.
  • Centralized key management to ensure secure storage, rotation, and sharing of cryptographic keys across the enterprise.
  • A dedicated AWS CloudHSM cluster for hardware-based security key management and regulatory compliance.
  • Integration of a third-party firewall solution to provide additional network security controls and filtering capabilities.
