The Worth of AWS Well-Architected Review

The AWS Well-Architected is a comprehensive collection of best practises for architecting and operating systems in the cloud that was compiled by AWS solution architects using their years of expertise. The AWS Well-Architected Review (AWS WAR) allows businesses to review their cloud architecture against best practises, even when their business requirements and workloads change. With AWS Well-Architected Review, businesses can evaluate their architectures and operations and find improvement opportunities.

More than

80% of businesses implement the suggestions made by the AWS Well-Architected Review programme.

AWS Well-Architected Framework’s 5 pillars

The AWS Well-Architected architecture facilitates the development and operation of safe, robust, efficient, and cost-effective cloud-based systems. The AWS Well-Architected methodology is built on five pillars: Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, and Cost Optimization, and provides a set of fundamental questions for evaluating new or current designs.

Operational Excellence Pillar

Provides assistance on developing standards to manage operations, enhancing procedures, reacting to planned/unplanned events, and effectively monitoring and operating AWS workloads.

Security Pillar

Concentrates on safeguarding data and systems, regulating access (Identity and Access Management), recognising possible security risks, and managing the effects of security events.

Reliability Pillar

Addresses resilience, availability, and disaster recovery, ensuring that AWS workloads run properly and consistently, minimising and recovering from any infrastructure or service disturbances.

Performance Efficiency Pillar

Guides on choosing the appropriate resource types, using computing resources effectively, and monitoring continually to achieve maximum performance across all AWS workloads.

Cost Optimization Pillar

Focuses on avoiding overpaying on cloud resources by evaluating, managing, monitoring, and spending appropriately depending on the needs and requirements of the organisation.

CDWT's AWS Well-Architected Review (WAR): What you can expect

Architecture Assessment

Report Generation and Recommendations

Remedial Support

Existing cloud architectures are evaluated by our certified AWS specialists in collaboration with key customer stakeholders.

Using AWS tools and CDWT proprietary technologies, we compile an in-depth report based on our aggregate results and assist client teams in interpreting this output in order to formulate effective suggestions.

Our AWS-certified specialists assist customers with their selected remediation paths/activities.

Scope of the AWS WAR

CDWT presents an evaluation of the client’s existing cloud status using the AWS Well-Architected Framework, cloud-native technologies, and the CDWT consulting methodology. The five pillars of the AWS Well-Architected architecture are introduced: Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, Cost, and Optimization. How CDWT use AWS tools for identifying gaps. Validation (at a high level) of the AWS Landing Zone design against the best practise criteria

AWS Well-Architected Review Process

Customer journey through the AWS Well-Architected Review

Prior to the Review:

On the Day Review:

Post Review:

The client prepares information according to specifications and determines task priorities (s). CDWT sets up a time for review, invites required stakeholders (IT/business representatives, AWS approved consulting partner ) for the review.

3 to 6 hours of an on-site or remote Well-Architected Review (WAR) workshop that is interactive. Using the AWS Well-Architected Tool, our AWS professionals undertake in-depth reviews of selected workloads and verify compliance with the five pillars of AWS WAR. On the basis of the evaluation and audit, we identify some possible improvement areas and quick cost-cutting solutions.

1-2 days of internal processing time are required to generate the WAR Report. The review report gives a picture of the workload's alignment with the well-architected framework. Based on audit results, a 2-hour report tour offering recommendations/remediation plan for optimizing the cloud infrastructure for the selected workload. Create a prioritized roadmap based on the five major pillars of the AWS Well-Architected architecture and agree on the next stages with customers.

The AWS Well-Architected framework provides design principles and best practises for creating and managing safe, efficient, and cost-effective cloud-based systems.

It offers a method for assessing your new or current cloud infrastructure based on five pillars: security, dependability, performance efficiency, operational efficiency, and cost optimization.
AWS Well-Architected Reviews assess and repair systems using the AWS Well-Architected Framework. A cloud partner/MSP or cloud engineer runs through a series of questions to determine if the design and operations are in line with AWS's best practises.
Periodic (6-8 month) Well-architected evaluations of workloads are recommended. It helps optimise cloud expenses more effectively.
