What is AWS Well-Architected?

The Well-Architected Framework has been developed to help AWS customers and cloud architects build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for their applications.  

Based on the key pillars — operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimisation — the Framework provides a consistent approach for AWS customers and partners to evaluate architectures, and implement designs that will scale over time.  

The Pillars of AWS Well-Architected

Operational Excellence

The operational excellence pillar focuses on running and monitoring systems to deliver business value, and continually improving processes and procedures. Key topics include managing and automating changes, responding to events, and defining standards to successfully manage daily operations.

Industry Grade Security

The security pillar focuses on protecting information & systems. Key topics include confidentiality and integrity of data, identifying and managing who can do what with privilege management, protecting systems, and establishing controls to detect security events.

Supreme Expert Reliability

The reliability pillar focuses on the ability to prevent, and quickly recover from failures to meet business and customer demand. Key topics include foundational elements around setup, cross project requirements, recovery planning, and how we handle change.

Performance Efficiency

The performance efficiency pillar focuses on using IT and computing resources efficiently. Key topics include selecting the right resource types and sizes based on workload requirements, monitoring performance, and making informed decisions to maintain efficiency as business needs evolve.

Effective Cost Optimization

Cost Optimization focuses on avoiding un-needed costs. Key topics include understanding and controlling where money is being spent, selecting the most appropriate and right number of resource types, analyzing spend over time, and scaling to meet business needs without overspending.

Continued Best Practices

This final pillar ensures key concepts, design principles for architecting in the cloud, and continued practice of the other core five pillars. We help you compare your workload against AWS best practices, and guide you to produce stable and efficient systems so you can focus on functional requirements.
