The Well-Architected Framework
The AWS Well-Architected Framework provides architectural best practices across the five pillars for designing and operating reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective systems in the cloud. The framework provides a set of questions that allows you to review an existing or proposed architecture. It also provides a set of AWS best practices for each pillar. Incorporating these pillars into your architecture helps produce stable and efficient systems. This allows you to focus on the other aspects of design, such as functional requirements.
The AWS Well-Architected Framework helps customer build the most secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure possible for their applications. This framework provides a consistent approach for customers to evaluate architectures, and provides guidance to implement designs that scale with your application needs over time.
Rapyder is among a select few AWS consulting partners worldwide that have been approved as a certified AWS Well-Architected Partner. AWS Well-Architected Partners are able to provide deep AWS knowledge and hands-on experience architecting, building, migrating, and optimizing architectures that follow the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
While the AWS’ Well-Architected Framework is a powerful tool, the framework itself is only a starting point. Rapyder has already delivered several free Well-Architected Reviews helping our customers to obtain actionable insight into their environment’s security, reliability, and performance, as well as their cloud operations and return on cloud spend.
