AWS Well Architected Review

Steamhaus are an approved AWS Well-Architected partner, in fact we were among a handful of partners that pioneered the programme with AWS.

What is the Well Architected Framework?

The Well-Architected Framework is AWS’s best-practice model to help cloud architects build the most secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure possible for their applications.

How does it work?

A Well-Architected Review consists of assessing a specific, business-critical workload against the five pillars of the WA Framework, including operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimisation.

The review typically takes up to half a day and is delivered free of charge.

On completion of the review we provide a report detailing any optimisation recommendations identified. As an Authorised Well-Architected partner we can also help you access AWS credits to fund up to 3 days of our consultancy time to implement remediations.
