ScalePoynt Managed DevOps


SaaS platform development for startups is plagued with re-work, inevitably delaying your roadmap, increasing cost of headcount, leaving security risks, and risking instability & scale issues in your platform.

ScalePoynt DevOps for Startups provides a better way to build your infrastructure right, and get your platform in market fast:

  • Rapid rollout of your infrastructure & environments
  • Security-first design that is SOC-2 and HIPAA-ready
  • Built from the ground-up for scale and high availability
  • Fully managed design, rollout and support


For Early Stage customers, we frequently find common themes driving their AWS DevOps:

  • Need to get a new platform to market quickly
  • Enterprise customers are giving us detailed Security Audits, and we need our AWS cloud platform to meet those requirements
  • When sales do hit, we need the platform to scale for our customers

ScalePoynt helps by taking DevOps and Security fully off our customers’ hands, with a rapid, turn-key rollout. We allow our customers to focus on product and engineering development, while we rollout the AWS infrastructure, environments, and CI/CD in parallel.

We find that SaaS cloud environments are best suited to the same, industry best practices design — with a small amount of tailoring to each customer. While these designs are non-trivial, our ScalePoynt IP has templated them so we roll them out using Terraform automation, and offer enterprise-level designs to startup companies, and meet the security needs and forward-looking scale for their customers and users.

Best Practices

It’s critical you follow industry-leading best practices for your environments, infrastructure, caching, and databases — right from the start. Doing this will ensure you are setup for scale, availability, and can meet & exceed expectations in customer security audits.


  • Separate AWS accounts for each environment (DEV, QA, PROD).
  • AWS Organizations and SSO used for secure, centralized login and role-based access control.
  • Centralized billing roll-up to your Master AWS account.
  • Multiple availability zones (AZs) per environment.


  • All microservices hosted in ECS for auto-scaling and high availability, fronted by AWS ALB load balancers.
  • Service tier and Data tier in private subnets, encrypted in transit and at rest.
  • Fast page loading with CloudFront CDN caching your assets and pages hosted in AWS S3.
  • Infrastructure fully automated with Terraform, ensuring consistency across environments, and an automated ability to spin up regions in new countries if required by your customers.


  • Databases fully managed by AWS RDS (most popular is Aurora Postgres).
  • Databases encrypted at rest, with daily encrypted snapshots and weekly encrypted full backups.
  • Database logging enabled to CloudWatch for troubleshooting, and monitoring enabled for visibility.
  • Setup on single “t” instances in lower environments to save on cost, and properly sized production instances with high availability.
  • Automated patching and updates at night, managed automatically by failover across the HA instances.
