The cloud is everywhere. In fact, cloud data centers will process 94 percent of workloads by 2021 and cloud infrastructure spending surpassed $80 billion back in 2018. Plus, as you may be aware, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the leading cloud vendor on the market today. And if your organization is going to keep up with the level of growth and innovation AWS is delivering, it is of the utmost importance you have a strong and scalable infrastructure.
This is where the AWS Well-Architected Framework comes in. This framework is a set of resources designed to help cloud architects build resilient, secure, and efficient infrastructures for their applications. The framework is based on five core pillars: operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization. These pillars were built using the AWS experience coupled with customer feedback, and they are continually being fine-tuned to ensure conformance with the latest best practices.
The idea of the framework is to provide a dependable approach for customers and partners to assess architectures alongside business and technical objectives while mitigating risk. When you begin to combine these five pillars, you’ll be able to realize the full benefits of AWS. Let’s delve into the AWS Well-Architected Framework, what it entails, and how SoftwareONE can support.
