Amazon Web Services (AWS) have updated their “Well Architected Framework” resources intended to help admins align their systems with best practice recommendations.
We want to make sure that you are designing and building AWS-powered applications in the best possible way. Back in 2015 we launched AWS Well-Architected to make sure that you have all of the information that you need to do this right. The framework is built on five pillars:
Operational Excellence – The ability to run and monitor systems to deliver business value and to continually improve supporting processes and procedures.
Security – The ability to protect information, systems, and assets while delivering business value through risk assessments and mitigation strategies.
Reliability – The ability of a system to recover from infrastructure or service disruptions, dynamically acquire computing resources to meet demand, and mitigate disruptions such as misconfigurations or transient network issues.
Performance Efficiency – The ability to use computing resources efficiently to meet system requirements, and to maintain that efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve.
Cost Optimization – The ability to run systems to deliver business value at
the lowest price point.
Whether you are a startup, a unicorn, or an enterprise, the AWS Well-Architected Framework will point you in the right direction and then guide you along the way as you build your cloud applications.
