Optimize Your Cloud With the AWS Well-Architected Framework
After adopting cloud technology, how do you determine whether your workloads on AWS are optimized for efficiency, elasticity, and resilience? That’s where Cloudelligent comes to the rescue. We utilize the AWS Well-Architected Framework which provides a consistent set of best practices to evaluate your entire AWS environment, and then offer actionable insights to enhance performance, security, and cost-effectiveness.
Maximize Your AWS Investments
Even after utilizing the latest AWS technology, businesses may not see any fruitful returns if their cloud infrastructures are not optimized. Running workloads on AWS over a period of time also leads to performance degradation and efficiency loss. Performing regular reviews against the AWS Well Architected Framework is a crucial step in evaluating the operationality and integrity of your AWS environment.
What is the AWS Well-Architected Framework?
After years of experience in designing and reviewing thousands of customers’ successful architectures, the engineers at AWS have identified best practices and created these six pillars.
- Operational Excellence: Run and monitor systems to deliver business value, and continually improve processes.
- Security: Protect information, systems, and assets.
- Reliability: Scale dynamically and quickly recover from failures or disruptions.
- Performance Efficiency: Use cloud resources efficiently to match business requirements.
- Cost optimization: Gain visibility into cloud spend and minimize costs.
- Sustainability: Minimize the environmental impacts of running workloads on AWS.

Why is conducting AWS Well Architected Reviews vital for the success of an organization?
The rapid evolution of AWS services might prevent an organization from unlocking the full potential of the cloud. Over time, running workloads in the cloud may lead to performance degradation, loss of efficiency and security, and increased costs which can make their business vulnerable.
How often should an organization conduct Well Architected Reviews?
It is recommended to conduct these reviews every three to six months for each distinct workload. Organizations can instantly see improvements, compare the new outcomes against the previous reviews, and assess the current status of their AWS infrastructure against best practices. They can also keep pace with newly released AWS services and adopt them to leverage the benefits of cloud technology.
What are the deliverables of a Well-Architected Review (WAR)?
The Well-Architected Review contains:
- Identification of High-Risk Issues (HRI) and Medium Risk Issues (MRI)
- Prioritization of risks and opportunities by criticality
- Roadmap of estimated time and cost to resolve the identified issues
- Opportunities for cost savings
