AWS Well-Architected Framework

As an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, trained in the AWS Well-Architected Framework, Uturn Data Solutions is excited to offer a cost-neutral AWS Well-Architected Review. These reviews are conducted by a Uturn Data Pro Certified AWS Architect, trained in conducting Well-Architected Reviews.


What is the Well-Architected Framework?

The AWS Well-Architected Framework is designed to provide you with high-level guidance and best practices to help you build and maintain secure, reliable, performant, cost optimized, and operationally excellent applications in the AWS Cloud. This framework has been built based on AWS’s experience reviewing and designing thousands of workloads running on the cloud. Adhering to the principles of the Well-Architected Framework allows for:

Build and Deploy Faster – Automate. Automate. Automate. Always use automation to make experimentation and recovery easier.
Lower Risks – Understand your security risks and address them before your applications are put into production
Make Informed Decisions – Learn how to analyze applications and business outcomes, considering trade-offs that have to be made between performance, availability, and cost.
Learn AWS Best Practices – Guidance based on reviewing thousands of customers’ architectures on AWS.


What are the AWS Well-Architected Framework Pillars?

The AWS Well-Architected Framework is broken into 5 pillars, which allows for a more efficient analysis for the workload.

Operational Excellence

Run and monitor systems to deliver business value and to continually improve supporting processes and procedures


Protect information, systems, and assets while delivering business value through risk assessments and mitigation strategies


Recover from infrastructure or service failures, dynamically acquire computing resources to meet demand, and mitigate disruptions

Performance Efficiency

Use computing resources efficiently to meet system requirements, and to maintain that efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve

Cost Optimization

Drive cost efficiencies in the design, delivery, and maintenance of AWS environments


What is an AWS Well-Architected Review?

The AWS Well-Architected Review is a half-day analysis of an AWS workload against the AWS best practices. This review is conducted by AWS Pro Certified Solutions Architects, who have been trained on the AWS Well-Architected Review and worked/analyzed a multitude of different workloads. Once the in-person review has been completed a follow up meeting is scheduled to present the areas, within the workload, that need to be remediated based on the framework.

NOT AN AUDIT. The Well-Architected Review is not an audit, but a third party analysis of the current architecture. The third party nature allows for an objective assessment of the current system and provides a lens in which to measure an environment against thousands of successful AWS implementations.
