What is an Azure landing zone?

Azure landing zones are the output of a multisubscription Azure environment that accounts for scale, security governance, networking, and identity. Azure landing zones enable application migration, modernization and innovation at enterprise-scale in Azure. These zones consider all platform resources that are required to support the customer's application portfolio and don't differentiate between infrastructure as a service or platform as a service.

A landing zone is an environment for hosting your workloads, preprovisioned through code. Watch the following video to learn more.

Scalable and modular

No single solution fits all technical environments. A few Azure landing zone implementation options can help you meet the deployment and operations needs of your growing cloud portfolio.

  • Scalable: All Azure landing zones support cloud adoption at scale by providing repeatable environments, with consistent configuration and controls, regardless of the workloads or Azure resources deployed to each landing zone instance.
  • Modular: All Azure landing zones provide a modular approach to building out your environment, based on a common set of design areas. Each design area can be easily extended to support the distinct needs of various technology platforms like SQL, AKS, WVD, etc.

Whether you're looking to deploy your first production application to Azure or you're operating a complex portfolio of tech platforms & workloads, the Azure landing zone implementation options can be tailored to your needs.
