SMS Has Technology Partnerships to Meet Our Customers' Needs and Goals

SMS continues to adapt to industry changes and customer needs

You need to run critical applications or develop software in cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure, or GCP. In order to create your infrastructure though, you will need to choose from among the hundreds of publicly available Terraform modules.

The quality of these modules might be uneven, and the modules you choose may not comply with your cloud provider’s best practices. You will then need to combine these Terraform modules (AWS, for instance, has over 370 distinct services) while following best practices for security and maintainability, all while creating and managing multiple accounts effectively.

Would you rather spend the time and find the expertise necessary to get all of this up and running quickly, or focus on building your product?

SMS Platform Accelerator

Our custom Infrastructure as Code through the use of Terraform allows you to focus on developing your product rather than building your cloud infrastructure.

Leveraging our team of highly qualified cloud engineers with Top Secret clearances and industry-relevant experience will put your deployment on the fast track. SMS partners with Gruntwork to provide dry, modular, and opinionated code. We ensure all projects meet the required compliance specifications to include FedRAMP, DISA STIG, CIS Benchmarks, NIST, and other DoD specifications relevant to cloud computing, on day one.

SMS’ dedicated Platform Engineering team has spent years using Terraform to solve cloud infrastructure challenges. Our platform engineers design and develop the infrastructure, tools, and frameworks necessary to create and manage these platforms, ensuring they are scalable, reliable, and secure. We work closely with software developers, operations teams, and other stakeholders to understand their needs and requirements, using this information to design and implement solutions to meet those needs.

We build your platform, allowing you to accelerate beyond your best outcome.


SMS AWS GovCloud Landing Zone

The SMS Platform team was the first to re-factor our partner Gruntwork’s Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Library into GovCloud.

And we have since deployed compliant Cloud infrastructures for Government as well as Commercial organizations.

By capitalizing on SMS’ operational experience in highly regulated environments and Gruntwork battle-tested code, you gain access to rapid deployment of your AWS ecosystem.

For greenfield or to migrate to a new cloud instance, SMS’ AWS GovCloud Landing Zone solution is a five-day engagement to rapidly deploy a scalable, secure, and compliant framework.
