SmartBase: Modern, Isolated Testing and Development Environment

As an end-to-end, off-the-shelf, isolated landing zone for pre-production development and testing, SmartBase can be precisely configured to the needs of a specific mission within days or weeks as opposed to the many months required by traditional solutions in this space.  

SmartBase Features: 

SmartBase is configured in AWS GovCloud—outside of agency network boundaries. Leveraging the AWS Landing Zone Accelerator and tailored by Booz Allen to unique mission needs, SmartBase provides: 

  • NIST-compliant cloud environments
  • The ability to test functionality, security, and performance in a sequestered cloud environment
  • Configurable controls to simulate agency-specific production conditions
  • Access to Booz Allen’s SmartFactory pipelines, which leverage proven, accredited patterns to empower building solutions on Day One
