AWS Well-Architected Framework Reviews

Benchmark your architecture against AWS global best practices and identify areas for improvement
AWS developed the Well-Architected Framework building upon years of Professional Services experience analysing and architecting solutions across a wide variety of business verticals.

AWS Solution Architects have identified best practices and core strategies for leveraging AWS to deliver secure, reliable and cost efficient services. AC3’s Well Architected Review provides you with an experienced Cloud Certified Professional to review and document one or more workloads in your cloud environment to scale existing and develop future applications on AWS for performance optimisation.

AWS Well-Architected Framework pillars

Incorporating these pillars into your architecture helps produce stable and efficient systems.
Operational Excellence
Operational Excellence focuses on running & monitoring systems to deliver business value & continually improving processes and procedures.
Security focuses on protecting information & systems. Key topics include confidentiality and integrity of data, identifying and managing who can do what with privilege management, protecting systems, and establishing controls to detect security events.
Reliability focuses on the ability to prevent, and quickly recover from failures to meet business and customer demand. Key topics include foundational elements around setup, cross project requirements, recovery planning, and how we handle change.
Performance Efficiency
Performance Efficiency focuses on using computing resources efficiently. Key topics include selecting the right resource types and sizes based on workload requirements, monitoring performance, and making informed decisions to meet system requirements and to maintain efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve.
Cost Optimisation
Cost Optimisation focuses on avoiding unneeded costs. Key topics include understanding and controlling where money is being spent, selecting the most appropriate and right number of resource types, analysing spend over time, and scaling to meet business needs without overspending.
The Sustainability pillar provides organisations with the opportunity to measure and improve their workloads using environmental best practices for cloud computing. To ensure best practice for sustainability in the cloud, the Sustainability pillar evaluates your architecture and implementation of your workloads to reduce energy consumption, allowing customers to reduce associated energy usage by nearly 80% with respect to a typical on-premises deployment.
