Multi-cloud Well Architectured Audit
Design and operate your cloud system using the architectural practices
Is your Infrastructure
Each time you intend to set up a framework or structure, the first thing you ensure is to strengthen its base by planting pillars for it to last long. Similarly, just deploying your infrastructure on the cloud isn’t sufficient. You need to ensure your architecture is well-architected as well.
The Well-Architected framework provides you an organized way of comparing your system with best practices and furnish guidance to help you improve with time. Workloads that follow a well-architected framework can build and deploy easily and at a faster rate, as well as mitigate risks and make system performance more efficient.
According to APN Blog by Derek Belt
“The AWS Well-Architected Framework helps cloud architects build the most secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure possible for their applications. This framework provides a consistent approach for customers and AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners to evaluate architectures, and guides to implement designs that scale with your application needs over time.”
According to Microsoft Azure
“The Azure Well-Architected Framework helps in evaluating architectures and building high-quality solutions. It helps you design, build and continuously improve a secure, reliable and efficient application. It is a set of guiding tenets that can be used to improve the quality of a workload. The Azure Well-Architected Review framework is designed to help you evaluate your workloads against the latest set of Azure best practices. It provides you with a suite of actionable guidance that you can use to improve your workloads in the areas that matter most to your business.”
According to GCP Blog by Omkar Suram
“Google’s Cloud Architecture Framework provides architecture best practices and implementation guidance on products and services to aid your application design choices based on your unique business needs. With the help of this framework, you can quickly identify areas where your approach differs from recommended best practices, so you can apply them across your organization to ensure standardization and achieve consistency.”
You deserve to be informed about the changes and updates that usually occur in & around your cloud portfolio to ensure you follow the best practices always. Well-Architected Audit (WAA) – a module of CloudEnsure, provides a multi-cloud platform that helps you understand your system effortlessly as well as analyze the business to ensure it delivers as per expectations. WAA aggregates general design principles with specific best practices and guidance in key areas known as 5 pillars of the Well-Architected Audit.
WAA presents a point to point evaluation and measurement on your cloud set-up. It continuously monitors and governs your architecture with proactive recommendations to shape your infrastructure into a secure, optimized, cost-efficient, reliable and operational efficient system.
5 Pillars of AWS Well Architected Audit
We consider security as one of our most important pillars. With an increasing number of data breaches and threats, it is extremely important to have a secure infrastructure. We maintain the CIA triad i.e., Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability and make sure that your information, systems, and infrastructure are secure while delivering business. This surety comes from conducting risk assessments and adopting mitigation strategies.
Who doesn’t want good services at a low price? We monitor your infrastructure and suggest the best ways to eliminate unwanted costs. Our key focus areas include analyzing needless resources, monitoring expenses over time, and delivering business requirements without overspending.
This pillar enables the system to recover from quick service or infrastructure disruptions to ascertain the smooth delivery of customer needs. Our key focus revolves around the setup elements, cross-project requirements, recovery planning, and change management techniques.
This pillar facilitates running and monitoring the system to deliver business values and meet customer expectations. It also continually improves ancillary processes and procedures and includes managing and automating changes, responding to events, and defining standards to successfully manage daily operations.
The focus is on using IT and computing resources efficiently to meet requirements and maintain efficiency despite changing demands and technology. For instance, it is all about selecting the right resource types and sizes based on workload requirements, monitoring performance, and making informed decisions to maintain efficiency as business needs evolve.
