Continual improvement of the cloud environment is vital to drive performance, reliability, cost efficiency, security and governance. We apply the AWS Well-Architected Framework to remediate across these areas and ensure best practices.

Continual improvement of the cloud environment is vital to optimise cost, performance and other competitive advantages, and ensure governance and security. This requires continuous review of existing workloads. Synthesis applies the Well-Architected Framework to remediate across key areas.

Well-Architected Reviews

While hyper-scale cloud platforms offer ease of accessibility, the sheer number of architectural choices can prove daunting. How can organisations ensure that their workloads are optimised – cost effective, performant and secure according to cloud best practices?

AWS’ Well-Architected Framework provides guidance across five areas to optimise the architecture of cloud systems. By regularly conducting reviews, as often as every 6-12 months, customers can ensure that their workloads are optimised against these crucial design pillars:

  • Operational excellence. Running and monitoring systems to deliver business value.
  • Security. Protecting information and systems.
  • Reliability. Preventing and quickly recovering from failures.
  • Performance efficiency. Using it and computing resources efficiently.
  • Cost optimisation. Avoiding unnecessary costs.
Synthesis can help your organisation to:
  • Conduct reviews. Injecting insights and perspective from our own experience around remediation steps or by influencing the broader roadmap for the organisation.
  • Unlock AWS credits. Gain the benefit of AWS consumption credits for executing a review and committing to any remediation identified.
