A Well-Architected infrastructure can drive better business outcomes like reducing costs or security and compliance risk, improving the reliability of your core systems for better customer experiences, and much more. AWS solutions architects have identified best practices for architecting systems in the cloud based on their many years of experience in designing and reviewing thousands of customers’ architectures on AWS across virtually all business verticals and use cases. The result is the AWS Well-Architected Framework, based on six pillars.
AWS Well-Architected Framework Reviews (WAFRs) use the AWS Well-Architected Framework to provide a consistent approach to evaluate and remediate systems, based on best practices for designing and operating reliable, secure, efficient, operationally excellent, cost-optimized, and sustainable systems for the cloud.
nClouds is an approved AWS Well-Architected Partner and is certified to provide WAFRs. We apply our expertise as one of the leading AWS Well-Architected Partners globally to assess your critical workload running on AWS based on the six Well-Architected Framework pillars, identify high-risk issues (HRIs), and provide you with actionable recommendations to remediate issues and close gaps fast.
While the scope of the WAFR often starts with a focus on a high-priority workload, our experience is that a broader discussion happens. The WAFR evolves into precisely the discussion we want to have with our customers: How modern infrastructure on AWS will give you an advantage in the marketplace, like a better customer experience, faster idea-to-cash, or scalability.
We use the nOps cloud management platform. It’s purpose-built for the AWS Well-Architected Framework to:
