What is the AWS Well-Architected Review?

The Well-Architected Review is a practical application of the AWS Well-Architected Framework. The framework outlines design principles and architectural best practices for building and running production workloads in the cloud. The review provides a structured approach for identifying risks and improvements step-by-step.

The Well-Architected Review is based on a set of foundational questions across five conceptual areas that are defined by AWS as the pillars of the Well-Architected Framework. We review your workloads in AWS by benchmarking them against best practices in the following pillars: 

  • Operational Excellence
  • Security
  • Reliability
  • Performance Efficiency
  • Cost Optimization
