AWS Well-Architected Review

Discover opportunities for significant cost savings, improved application performance, and reduced security risks.

The AWS Well-Architected Review

AWS Well-Architected helps cloud architects build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for a variety of applications and workloads. Built around six pillars—operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, cost optimization, and sustainability—AWS Well-Architected provides a consistent approach for customers and partners to evaluate architectures and implement scalable designs.

The AWS Well-Architected Tool, available at no cost in the AWS Management Console, provides a mechanism for regularly evaluating workloads, identifying high-risk issues, and recording improvements.

Benefits of Well-Architected Review

Well-Architected Review helps existing AWS cloud users optimize cloud environment and aligin with the AWS's best practices. It also guides cloud users to build more secure, high-performing, resilient and efficient infrastructure for their applications and workloads.


Accelerated remediation of cost, performance, reliability, operations, and security related issues


Guidance on leveraging new AWS services and features that enhance the overall experience


Improvement in cloud usage by partnering with AWS-certified professionals who lead the well-architected review


Better understanding of the business impact of your design decisions in AWS

Well-Architected Review Pillars

The AWS Well-Architected Framework can help ensure your workloads are secure, high-performing, and resilient. Regularly review the state of your workloads to identify improvement opportunities across the six AWS Well-Architected Framework pillars.


The security pillar focuses on protecting information and systems. Key topics include confidentiality and integrity of data, managing user permissions, and establishing controls to detect security events.

Operational Excellence

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


The reliability pillar focuses on workloads performing their intended functions and how to recover quickly from failure to meet demands. Key topics include distributed system design, recovery planning, and adapting to changing requirements.

Performance Efficiency

The performance efficiency pillar focuses on structured and streamlined allocation of IT and computing resources. Key topics include selecting resource types and sizes optimized for workload requirements, monitoring performance, and maintaining efficiency as business needs evolve.

Cost Optimization

The cost optimization pillar focuses on avoiding unnecessary costs. Key topics include understanding spending over time and controlling fund allocation, selecting resources of the right type and quantity, and scaling to meet business needs without overspending.


The sustainability pillar focuses on minimizing the environmental impacts of running cloud workloads. Key topics include a shared responsibility model for sustainability, understanding impact, and maximizing utilization to minimize required resources and reduce downstream impacts.

Do You Qualify?

Everyone can qualify for a Well-Architected Framework Review. It offers great value for the time invested by your organization. We can review either the cloud environment or an on-premises environment.

Process of Getting an AWS Well-Architected Review

Our approach to assessing the cloud architecture through a Well-Architected Review follows AWS best practices: defining workload, defining the core team, deciding on the AWS pillars and lenses, deciding the session’s type, and finally collecting the necessary data for the review.

Architecture Assessment

Our authorized AWS professionals work with key client stakeholders to assess the existing cloud architectures.

Report generation & Recommendations

Using AWS tools, we generate an in-depth report based on our collective findings and help client teams interpret this output into actionable recommendations.

Remedial Support

Our certified AWS experts support clients in their chosen remediation paths/activities.


AWS Well-Architected framework presents the design principles, best practices for designing and operating secure, efficient, cost-effective systems in the cloud.

It provides an approach for evaluating your proposed or existing cloud infrastructure based on five pillars: security, reliability, performance efficiency, operational efficiency, and cost optimization.

AWS Well-Architected Reviews use the AWS Well-Architected Framework to evaluate and remediate systems. The review is done by a cloud partner/MSP, or by a cloud engineer, who walks through a set of questions to check if the architecture and operations are aligned with AWS’s recommended practices.

It is recommended to have periodic (6-8 months) Well architected reviews of workloads. It helps optimize the cloud costs better.
