AWS Well-Architected Framework: an event with AWS and Steamhaus

Join AWS and Steamhaus at this event dedicated to the Well-Architected Framework: AWS’s best practice model for building and running cloud platforms. At the event you will learn about:

  • The key principles of the framework
  • How it can help you build and run better, faster, and more cost-effective cloud platforms
  • Well-Architected Reviews and how they can help you improve and optimise your platform

The Well-Architected Framework has been developed to guide developers, architects, and sysops as they design, build, migrate or optimise workloads to run secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for their applications and services. Based on five pillars—operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization — the Framework provides a consistent approach for customers and partners to evaluate architectures, and implement designs that will scale over time.
