AWS Best Practices to Optimize Your Workloads

Man performing an AWS Well Architected Review

Why Do I Need A Well Architected Review?

The best applications can disappoint if you’re not optimized for AWS. Well Architected Reviews are an important step in evaluating your AWS environment. The review is a disciplined, systematic evaluation built on AWS best practices.

Our Well Architected Reviews are conducted by certified AWS cloud architects who have conducted hundreds of reviews and understand the intricacies of optimizing AWS workloads. Our team anticipates where failure may happen and provides proactive recommendations that will save you time and money, today and down the road.

Developed to help build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for your applications. The Framework provides a consistent approach to evaluate architectures and implement designs that will scale over time.

Our AWS Well-Architected Review includes strategies to help you compare your workload against AWS best practices and obtain guidance to produce stable and efficient systems, allowing you to focus on functional requirements.

Five Pillars

There is no cost for our Well-Architected Review!

Depending on the complexity or your workload, a Well-Architected Review will only take between 1 and 4 hours. Our team will have your results ready to present to you within two weeks.

We’ll provide you with a summary of finding for each pillar specifically calling out areas for improvement and critical issues. We also provide a roadmap with short-, medium-, and long-term recommended action items as well as an estimate of the hours required to address each identified need.

Your Custom Path to Cloud Excellence

The Well Architected Review is designed to help you understand how you can optimize your AWS workloads. It is not an audit. The architecture of a workload changes over time, and Well-Architected reviews are recommended at key milestones in the product lifecycle to make sure you’re getting the best value out of your AWS environment.

And if you’re not yet in AWS, then we’ll work with you to eliminate the mistakes others have made before you. We can help you optimize your workload before we migrate it to AWS, or we can optimize a lift-and-shift workload, so you don’t over provision or overspend.
