🦄 AWS Well-Architected Framework Introduction

The AWS Well-Architected Framework documents a set of foundational questionsthat allow you to understand if a specific architecture aligns well with cloud bestpractices. The framework provides a consistent approach to evaluating systemsagainst the qualities you expect from modern cloud-based systems, and theremediation that would be required to achieve those qualities. As AWS continuesto evolve, and AWS continues to learn more from working with our customers, we willcontinue to refine the definition of well-architected.

This framework is intended for those in technology roles, such as chief technologyofficers (CTOs), architects, developers, and operations team members. It describesAWS best practices and strategies to use when designing and operating a cloudworkload, and provides links to further implementation details and architecturalpatterns.

AWS also provides a service for reviewing your workloads at no charge. The AWS Well-Architected Tool (AWS WA Tool) is a service in the cloud that provides a consistentprocess for you to review and measure your architecture using the AWS Well-Architected Framework. The AWS WA Tool provides recommendations for making your workloads more reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective.

To help you apply best practices, AWS has created AWS Well-Architected Labs, whichprovides you with a repository of code and documentation to give you hands-onexperience implementing best practices. We also have teamed up with select AWSPartner Network (APN) Partners, who are members of the AWS Well-ArchitectedPartner program. These APN Partners have deep AWS knowledge, and can help youreview and improve your workloads.
