Optimize workloads with an AWS Well-Architected Review

Utilize the AWS Well-Architected Framework to review, design, and deploy architectures that follow cloud best practices. Applying these AWS best practices will help you and your customers more accurately predict capacity needs, test systems at production scale, and build architectures that can evolve based on new technologies and changing business needs.

The 6 Pillars of the Well-Architected Framework

The AWS Well-Architected Framework can help ensure your workloads are secure, high-performing, and resilient. Regularly review the state of your workloads to identify improvement opportunities across the six AWS Well-Architected Framework pillars.

Closely aligned with the AWS Well Architected Framework, the SupportSages Well-Architected Review evaluates your cloud solution against six key areas:

Operational Excellence​

Improving business outcomes and delivering value to customers and your bottom line are fundamental goals of your cloud strategy. We help you achieve these goals by looking at your processes against a set of design principles and best practices. We’ll help you identify gaps and recommend ways to measure, monitor, and continually improve operations.


All systems are constantly under attack by evolving threats. Your cloud security strategy must evolve to stay ahead by using AI-generated security insights, automated monitoring and remediation, logging, tracing, periodic risk assessments, and mitigation strategies. We’ll look at your enterprise holistically – people, process, and data in transit and at rest — to ensure your security strategy is built on a strong foundation.​

Cost Optimization

To truly understand the effectiveness of your cloud strategy, you have to have a clear understanding of your business goals. In other words, it’s not simply how much are you paying, it’s how much business value are you getting. We can help you identify opportunities for cost savings while achieving your business goals in the cloud by identifying and implementing best practices from the AWS Well-Architected Framework cost-optimization pillar.​

Performance Efficiency

The cloud is not static; it is continually evolving with new capabilities enabling new strategies and implementations. Are you keeping up? By reviewing your choices on a cyclical basis, you will ensure you are taking advantage of the continually evolving AWS cloud. The optimal solution for a particular system will vary based on the kind of workload you have, often with multiple approaches combined. Well-architected systems use multiple solutions and enable different features to improve performance.


Disruptions in service are costly. We will assess your ability to dynamically acquire computing resources to meet demand, and mitigate disruptions such as misconfigurations or transient network issues. When an event occurs, how fast can you get back online? We’ll check to see if your system can detect failures and heal them automatically. You must have sufficient network bandwidth to your data center. These requirements are sometimes neglected. This neglect can have a significant impact on the ability to deliver a reliable system.​


The ability to continually improve sustainability impacts by reducing energy consumption and increasing efficiency across all components of a workload by maximizing the benefits from the provisioned resources and minimizing the total resources required.​

With SupportSages discover the benefits of conducting an AWS Well-Architected Framework Review to help with building and operating secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient cloud workloads.

It is perfect for organizations looking to periodically evaluate their architecture to identify and remedy potential risks before they become problems, and fill any gaps that may be causing performance or security issues.

SupportSages team works with you to conduct an AWS Well Architected Framework Review, evaluating architectures for high-risk issues, and offering improvement plans that are based on AWS Well Architected best practices.
