More and more companies are moving their applications and data to the cloud to benefit from its advantages such as agility, speed and service richness. They initially start with a small number of workloads and constantly grow over time. After a while, the IT environment gets more complex. Often the initial goals are not fully achieved, and many customers ask themselves the question:
"Am I doing the right thing"?
That’s where the Well-Architected Review comes into play.
The Well-Architected Framework consists out of 5 pillars and documents a set of foundational questions that allow you to understand if a specific architecture aligns well with cloud best practices.
Running and monitoring systems
Protecting information and systems and assets
Prevent and quickly recover from failures
Using IT and computing resources efficiently
Avoid or eliminate unnecessary costs
A certified cloud architect evaluates your environment against Well-Architected best practices and helps you to identify areas of improvement.
* For qualified organisations
** Applied to qualified projects, for AWS clients who start remediation within 30 days after delivery of the Well-Architected Review
The Well-Architected review with Swisscom was a pragmatic and efficient way to analyze the current AWS workload, where we gained significant benefits.
