What is an AWS Well-Architected Review (WAR)?
An AWS Well-Architected Review, or WAR, is a framework that was developed by AWS Cloud Architects to help create an efficient and effective infrastructure for applications being used in the AWS environment. The framework is now used globally by AWS Cloud Architect’s to help customers increase the value of their AWS platform for their specific business needs.
AWS Well-Architected Reviews are based on the following five key pillars:
These five key pillars are the foundation of your architecture. Just like buildings, when the foundation is not solid, structural problems can weaken the integrity of the building, leaving you at risk. Incorporating the pillars into your cloud architecture allows you to produce a stable and efficient foundation that can be easily built upon.
Not only do five the pillars allow you to focus on other aspects of software design, such as functional requirements, but it provides a consistent approach to evaluate your infrastructure. Learn more about the 5 Pillars of an AWS Well-Architected Review
