Well-Architected Framework Review

Your Cloud, Your Way

The Well-Architected Framework Review was developed by AWS to help cloud architects design and continually improve secure, high-performing, resilient, and cost-optimized infrastructure for their applications. Accelerate and Optimize your Cloud Architecture with an AWS Well-Architected Framework Review Increased velocity of digital innovation, lower capital expenditures, the same state-of-the-art infrastructure and the ability to achieve a global scale in minutes. It’s one thing to “lift and shift” your workload into the cloud, but it’s another story to deeply examine whether that workload is optimized for the cloud. But once you’re in the cloud, how do you know you’re getting the full benefit? That’s where STC Well-Architected Review comes in.

The 6 Pillars of the Well-Architected Framework Review.

Operational Excellence

Improving business outcomes and delivering value to customers and your bottom line are fundamental goals of your cloud strategy. We help you achieve these goals by looking at your processes against a set of design principles and best practices. We’ll help you identify gaps and recommend ways to measure, monitor, and continually improve operations.


All systems are constantly under attack by evolving threats. Your cloud security strategy must evolve to stay ahead by using AI-generated security insights, automated monitoring and remediation, logging, tracing, periodic risk assessments, and mitigation strategies. We’ll look at your enterprise holistically – people, process, and data in transit and at rest — to ensure your security strategy is built on a strong foundation.

Cost Optimization

To truly understand the effectiveness of your cloud strategy, you have to have a clear understanding of your business goals. In other words, it’s not simply how much are you paying, it’s how much business value are you getting. For example, do you want to optimize for speed to market or for cost? In some cases, it’s best to optimize for speed—going to market quickly, shipping new features, or simply meeting a deadline—rather than investing in upfront cost optimization.

Performance Efficiency

The cloud is not static; it is continually evolving with new capabilities enabling new strategies and implementations. Are you keeping up? By reviewing your choices on a cyclical basis, you will ensure you are taking advantage of the continually evolving AWS cloud. The optimal solution for a particular system will vary based on the kind of workload you have, often with multiple approaches combined. Well-architected systems use multiple solutions and enable different features to improve performance


Disruptions in service are costly. We will assess your ability to dynamically acquire computing resources to meet demand, and mitigate disruptions such as misconfigurations or transient network issues. When an event occurs, how fast can you get back online? We’ll check to see if your system can detect failures and heal them automatically. You must have sufficient network bandwidth to your data center. These requirements are sometimes neglected. This neglect can have a significant impact on the ability to deliver a reliable system.


The ability to continually improve sustainability impacts by reducing energy consumption and increasing efficiency across all components of a workload by maximizing the benefits from the provisioned resources and minimizing the total resources required.
