AWS Well-Architected Framework

Did you know that the AWS Well-Architected Framework Review (WAFR) has been specifically designed to ensure that your AWS environment is cost-optimised, efficient, and secure? By participating in a WAFR (Well-Architected Framework Review), you can find and eliminate any elements of your cloud architecture that don’t measure up to best practices.

It is important to note that the WAFR is more than a simple audit. It will reveal an actionable list of improvements and recommendations that you can take to get your environment to where it should be.

Outcomes of the Well-Architected Framework Review

Our goal is to give you the roadmap to take to upgrade your architecture. During your WAFR, our team of certified cloud experts will assess and review your existing infrastructure.

All you need to do is answer a series of questions about your workload, and we’ll deliver an action plan. What could be easier?
