What is a Well-Architected Review ?

The Well-Architected Review is a meticulous assessment of your AWS architecture against AWS best practices. It ensures your cloud workloads are secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient. This review acts as a blueprint to optimize your AWS environment, aligning it with your business goals.

This comprehensive review involves assessing a specific, business-critical workload against the six pillars of the Well-Architected Framework. These pillars include operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, cost optimization, and sustainability.

AWS recommends undergoing a Well-Architected Review every 12-18 months to ensure the ongoing effectiveness and alignment of your AWS environment with best practices.

Operational Excellence

Cost Optimisation

The ability to run systems to deliver business value at the lowest price point.


The ability to protect information, systems, and assets while delivering business value through risk assessments and mitigation strategies.


The ability 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.
