AWS Well-Architected Partner Program

Is your AWS infrastructure really “Well-Architected”?

Have you wondered if you are really getting the most out of your AWS environment?

Is your AWS architecture in line with the “best practices” in your industry?

Well-planned and implemented AWS architectures provide a strategic advantage and can ensure your long-term success. To ensure that your architecture is also appropriately sized, we recommend a review as part of the AWS Well-Architected Framework.

AWS Well-Architected Framework overview

The AWS Well-Architected Framework is based on the following 6 principles:

  • Security – Protection of information and systems.
  • Reliability – Fault prevention, rapid recovery of systems.
  • Efficiency – Efficient use of AWS resources.
  • Cost OptimizationAvoid unnecessary costs.
  • Operational Excellence – Aligning structures, processes, and behaviors so that a continuously improving organization is possible.
  • Sustainability – Addresses the minimization of impact on the environment through the use of cloud workloads.

The AWS Well-Architected Partner Program

An IT architecture assessment is always done in a comparable and traceable way. The AWS Well-Architected Partner Program takes only a few hours ( rather than a few days). Within the framework of an iterative dialog, the focus is always on problem solving, as well as continuous improvement of the systems. And here tecRacer can support you competently as your neutral partner.

What is the AWS Well-Architected Framework?

The AWS Well-Architected Framework is designed to support and guide cloud architects in building highly secure, high-performance, robust, and efficient AWS infrastructures.

The framework helps to make all decisions that have to be made when setting up systems in the AWS cloud as traceable as possible and offers the possibility to compare AWS architectures based on best practices and to identify improvement opportunities.

As a result, the operation of applications in the AWS cloud can be made even more reliable, secure, efficient and cost-effective.
