AWS’s set of best practice guidance for running applications is designed to help you build secure, high-performing, and efficient infrastructure for your applications.
What is the Well-Architected Framework?
AWS’s set of best practice guidance for running applications – known as the Well-Architected Framework – is designed to help you build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for your applications. It’s based on six pillars:
- Operational excellence
- Performance efficiency
- Cost optimisation
Why Did AWS Create the Well-Architected Framework?
AWS runs more cloud services at scale than anyone else and have helped design and review thousands of customers’ architectures. These real-world experiences led to the creation of the Well-Architected Framework.
How Can the Well-Architected Framework Help Me?
By benchmarking your applications against the Well-Architected Framework you can leverage all of AWS’ experiences. It allows you to learn from the best in the world and bring your production workload up to the highest standard.
What Does a Well-Architected Review Involve?
The well-architected review takes about half a day. One of Sourced Group’s consultants will meet with your technical team (face-to-face or remotely) and walk through your production workload. We’ll guide you through a series of questions aligned to the framework and will benchmark your systems against the AWS proven best practice.
Following the review, you’ll receive a report with recommendations on how to improve your architecture. These recommendations will be prioritised and high impact improvements clearly identified.
What Does a Well-Architected Review Cost?
Not only is a Well-Architected Review completely free of charge but certain workloads qualify for $5,000 worth of AWS credits when you use an AWS Partner to remediate 25% of the high impact items.
