The Infostretch AWS Well-Architected Framework Review

Infostretch is an accredited AWS Well-Architected Partner. We have developed a proven 10-step process for conducting effective Well-Architected Reviews with AWS customers.

We utilize the framework and tools to deliver a comprehensive review of an individual workload—defined as a set of machines, instances, or servers that together enabled the delivery of a service to internal/external users, e.g., business application, e-commerce website, or web application.

The result of this review is a detailed analysis of the workload performance measured against the five pillars of success outlined above: Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, and Cost Optimization. It will also provide a mitigation plan for areas that do not meet Framework recommendations.
