AWS Well-Architected

It takes knowledge and insight to make informed decisions. Therefore, KeyCore offers your company AWS' special Well-Architected Review (AWS WAR), which is a thorough review of your company's entire business-critical AWS infrastructure.


AWS WAR is built on the six pillars of AWS' Well-Architected Framework:

  1. Operational Excellence
  2. Security
  3. Reliability
  4. Performance
  5. Cost Optimisation
  6. Sustainability

AWS WAR is conducted remotely, and as a result you will receive a detailed written report. This will contain 10 detailed and customer-specific initiatives that you can take immediately to improve infrastructure and achieve cost reduction or improved security. The report will be subsequently reviewed at a 2-3 hour workshop, where all relevant parties participate.

Completing an AWS WAR requires a special superstructure through the AWS global certification system. As an Advanced Partner, several of KeyCore’s specialists have this superstructure added to their AWS certification.

The AWS Well-Architected Framework (WAF) is a set of best practices and design principles for building secure, reliable, and efficient infrastructure on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. It is designed to help organizations review and improve the overall architecture of their workloads on AWS.

Conducting a Well-Architected Review (WAR) helps organizations identify areas of their workloads that may be misaligned with best practices, identify areas for improvement, and optimize their workloads for cost, performance, and security.

A Well-Architected Review should be conducted by a team of experienced architects who are familiar with the workload being reviewed, as well as with the AWS Well-Architected Framework.

The process for conducting a Well-Architected Review includes:

  • Identifying the workload to be reviewed
  • Gathering data about the workload
  • Assessing the workload against the five pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework (Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, and Cost Optimization)
  • Identifying areas for improvement
  • Developing and implementing a plan to address identified issues

It is recommended to conduct a Well-Architected Review at least annually, or whenever there are significant changes to the workload being reviewed.

There is no direct cost associated with conducting a Well-Architected Review. However, there may be costs associated with implementing any changes or improvements recommended as a result of the review. If we conduct or facilitate the review you pay only for time used.
