The Well-Architected Framework Review was developed by AWS to help cloud architects design and continually improve secure, high-performing, resilient, and cost-optimized infrastructure for their applications.
Focuses on running and monitoring systems to deliver business value and continually improving processes and procedures. Key topics include automation, incident response, and change management.
Concentrates on protecting information & systems. Best practices involve confidentiality and integrity of data, identifying & managing who can do what with privilege management, establishing controls to detect security events.
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.
Uses IT and computing resources efficiently. Topics include selecting the right resource types (like storage or compute), monitoring performance, and making informed decisions to maintain efficiency as business needs evolve.
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.
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.
