AWS Well-Architected Framework

The AWS Well-Architected Framework offers a comprehensive set of architectural best practices encompassing the five pillars. These pillars serve as guidelines for designing and operating cloud-based systems that are reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective. By utilizing this framework, organizations can assess their existing or proposed architectures using a set of well-defined questions. Additionally, the framework provides a collection of AWS best practices associated with each pillar. By incorporating these pillars into their architecture, businesses can establish stable and efficient systems, allowing them to focus on other design aspects, such as meeting functional requirements.

The AWS Well-Architected Framework is a valuable resource for customers seeking to construct highly secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructures for their applications. By adhering to this framework, customers can adopt a consistent approach to evaluate their architectures and receive guidance on implementing scalable designs that adapt to evolving application needs over time.
