AWS Well-Architected Framework Review

The AWS Well-Architected Framework provides architectural best practices for designing and operating secure, high-performance, resilient, efficient, and cost-effective systems in the cloud.

Based on six key pillars, this framework offers a practical approach that allows us to discover to what extent an architecture is aligned with best practices and identify areas of improvement on which to capitalize.

AWS Well-Architected Framework Pillars

AWS Well-Architected Operational Excellence

Run and monitor systems to deliver business value and continually improve supporting processes and procedures.

AWS Well-Architected Security

Protect information, systems, and assets while delivering business value through risk assessments and mitigation strategies.

AWS Well-Architected Reliability

Recover from infrastructure or service failures, dynamically acquire computer resources to meet demand, and mitigate disruptions.

AWS Well-Architected Performance Efficiency

Use computing resources efficiently to meet system requirements, and to maintain efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve.

AWS Well-Architected Cost Optimization

Avoid and eliminate unnecessary costs or suboptimal resources with cost effective resources, matched supply and demand, and expenditure awareness.

AWS Well-Architected Sustainability

Minimize environmental impacts and improve efficiency by reducing resources and energy consumption of your cloud workloads.

six pillars

The AWS Well-Architected Framework Review helps find common errors and make recommendations for implementation and development of products and services in the cloud, such as:

  • Workloads with costly idle resources or performance implications of limited capacity
  • Enabling scalable environments that allow to grow or decrease services automatically dynamically
  • Test environments at production scale on demand so as not to impact the current operation
  • Automation to facilitate architectural experimentation and replicate workloads at low cost, and reduce manual efforts
  • Evolutionary architectures that take full advantage of AWS services to minimize operating costs and adapt to demanding market requirements

Once the Well-Architected Review process has been executed, a final report with prioritized recommendations for their attention and remediation is presented. Our cloud team can help design a strategy and a work plan to optimize the evaluated infrastructure based on the findings.
