What is Well-Architected?
Amazon Web Services (AWS) designed the Well-Architected Review as a way for organizations to reflect on the most relevant best practices to their AWS workload. As the cloud is constantly evolving, this review helps your leadership identify opportunities for cost optimization, improved security, automation, and other cloud considerations.

What companies should consider a review?
Performing a review is a great way for any company with AWS architecture to double check their assumptions, optimize their infrastructure, and ensure that all best practices are followed. As the cloud is constantly evolving, your cloud journey towards excellence should be an ongoing process.

Does it cost money to perform the review?
For qualified workloads, our team will perform the review at no cost with no obligations. And if you decide to work with us after the review, AWS may contribute credits to help defray costs. Reach out here to see if your workload qualifies.

How does a review work?
We work with your leadership to define success criteria and how AWS fits into your overall strategy. Our team then works with your team to understand current processes and the architecture of your workload. After 1-3 days of our team analyzing your workload, we will present our findings to all stakeholders in the form of a report with specific recommendations and steps for remediation and cost savings.
