AWS Foundational Technical Review & AWS Well-Architected Review
What is the AWS Foundational Technical Review?
The AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) enables you to identify and remediate risks in your products or solutions. The FTR requires you to meet a specific set of requirements based on the AWS Well-Architected Framework, to ensure that your solutions are following AWS best practices related to security, reliability, and operational excellence.
How does a Foundational Technical Review differ from an AWS Well-Architected Framework Review?
AWS Partners with ISV solutions use the FTR to validate their product against a specific set of requirements for security, reliability, and operational excellence. Successful completion of an FTR enables them to earn a “Reviewed by AWS” solutions badge, unlock funding benefits, and become eligible for various AWS Partner Programs.
An AWS WAFR covers a broad set of best practices across the five pillars of the Framework — cost optimization, performance efficiency, security, reliability, and operational excellence. It is used as a mechanism to continually evaluate and improve your customers’ AWS workloads.

nOps is a cloud management platform, originally created by the award-winning DevOps delivery teams at nClouds, designed specifically to address cost, change, compliance, and security management for AWS environments.
nOps streamlines the FTR process and will accelerate and improve the accuracy of a Foundational Technical Review, Well-Architected Framework Review, or other AWS infrastructure assessment.
