AWS Well-Architected Framework Review (WAFR)

image-f3f10d6e4d0a

Use the Well Architected Framework Review (WAFR) for analysing your AWS environment and optimise it with a funded remediation

The Well-Architected Review is a great way to get feedback on your AWS architecture. This service is a cloud architecture assessment service that helps you review your workloads against the AWS Well-Architected Framework and mitigate issues. The Framework provides a consistent approach for evaluating architectures and includes best practices for building secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure on AWS.

Step 1: Review Workshop

We start with a workshop where we collaboratively look at the business in terms of the six pillars of Well-Architected operations.

The output of the review is a report listing all potential improvement areas and grouping them into High-Risk Issues and Medium-Risk issues.

The review helps identify areas where the architecture could be improved and provides recommendations on how to make those improvements. It is also an excellent opportunity to learn about best practices for AWS architecture and can help avoid potential problems down the road.

Step 2: Selecting the Risks for remediation

We work together to select which Risk Issues will be remediated in the context of the review. In most cases, this will involve the ones that deliver the most benefit to your business and AWS environment.

*If you decide to resolve a minimum 45% of the identified High-Risk Issues (HRIs) with our help you can be eligible for funding in the form of AWS credits upon resolving them.

Step 3: HRI remediation

We continue our collaboration to remediate the agreed HRIs. Through our extensive experience, we’ve created our own template library, as we’ve identified patterns across the many reviews we’ve done. Our Well-Architected team will identify any templates that might apply to your HRIs, or if a custom solution is needed.
