The Well-Architected Review is a consistent and thorough process of identifying gaps in an architecture when compared to the AWS Well-Architected Framework. During a Well-Architected Review, Anexinet’s AWS Certified Solution Architects guide you through the Well-Architected Framework to evaluate one of your workloads through a set of interactive discussions and data collection. The process looks at business and technical issues and should include stakeholders from both areas.During the discussion, you’ll receive immediate feedback on issues of major concern, such as unused resources or resources that not adequately protected. Following the review, you will receive a written report detailing our findings across each pillar along with a set of recommendations for remediation. Findings will be prioritized based on risk, cost savings, along with effort and cost to remediate
The operational excellence pillar focuses on running and monitoring systems to deliver value, and continually improving processes and procedures. Key topics include managing and automating changes, responding to events, and defining standards to successfully manage operations.
The security pillar focuses on protecting information & systems. Key topics include confidentiality and integrity of data, identifying and managing who can do what with privilege management, protecting systems, and establishing controls to detect security events.
